South Mountain Partnership Seeks Spirit Of South Mountain Award Nominations

The South Mountain Partnership is asking the public to submit nominations for the 7th Spirit of South Mountain Award covering Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties. The deadline for nominations is January 18.
Nominees can be individuals, projects, or organizations that have made significant contributions to advance a positive and sustainable future for the South Mountain Landscape.
Last year, the award went to the Cumberland Valley Rails-to-Trails Council, which is an all-volunteer, non-profit, charitable corporation dedicated to conservation, historic preservation, recreation and alternative transportation in the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania through the development of multi-use trails along former railroad corridors.
CVRTC received the award for their collective work over the past 25+ years to build and expand the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail, which was designated a National Recreational Trail in 2010.
The Spirit of South Mountain award will be presented at the 8th Annual Power of the Partnership Year-End Celebration on February 1, at the new Franklin County Visitors Center in Chambersburg.
Award nominations will be judged based on the degree to which they:
-- Enrich the quality of life and sense of place of the region's citizens and communities
-- Advance the conservation goals within the South Mountain region
-- Conserve the natural, cultural, recreational and agricultural resources that make the South Mountain landscape unique
-- Elevate public awareness of the natural, cultural, recreational, and agricultural resources
-- Encourage collaboration among residents, businesses, public agencies, local governments and nonprofit and community organizations
