President’s Environmental Youth Award Now Accepting Nominations

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 President’s Environmental Youth Award which recognizes outstanding environmental projects by K-12 youth. The deadline for nominations is [deadline is now March 30].
Each year the PEYA program honors a wide variety of projects developed by young individuals, school classes (kindergarten through high school), summer camps, public interest groups, and youth organizations to promote environmental awareness.
Thousands of young people from all 50 states and the U.S. territories have submitted projects to EPA for consideration.
Winning projects in the past have covered a wide range of subject areas, including: restoring native habitats; recycling in schools and communities; construction of nature preserves; tree planting; installing renewable energy projects; creating videos, skits and newsletters that focused on environmental issues; and participating in many other creative sustainability efforts.
Evaluation results consistently demonstrate that participation in the PEYA program is frequently a life-changing experience for many of the young people and their project sponsors.
Last year, Ardmore, Delaware County brothers Devin and Roldan Kramer won the President’s Environmental Youth Award for grade levels K-5 for their work to save frogs and toads.
