PA Wilds Center Now Seeking 2019 Champion Of PA Wilds Award Nominations

The PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship, Inc. is now accepting nominations for the 2019 PA Wilds Champion Awards.  The deadline of nominations is July 1.
The prestigious PA Wilds Champion Awards are given out annually to individuals, groups, organizations, communities and businesses that in the last year have made significant contributions to help grow and sustainably develop the outdoor recreation economy and nature tourism in the Pennsylvania Wilds in a way that creates jobs, diversifies local economies, inspires stewardship and improves quality of life.
The Pennsylvania Wilds region includes the counties of Warren, Forest, Elk, Potter, McKean, Tioga, Clinton, Lycoming, Clearfield, Jefferson, Cameron and Clarion, Northern Centre.
The region’s 12 county governments, visitor bureaus and many local organizations participate in the effort, along with Department of Conservation & Natural Resources and Department of Community & Economic Development.
“Based on feedback we received, we’re excited to move this important event to later in the year, creating a longer window for nominations and planning. As the PA Wilds initiative grows, our partner network is growing. We have so many new leaders, businesses, youth, conservation movements, community revitalization groups and more involved in the work – we really needed the extra time in the calendar year to be sure we’re covering all these participants and that the public has ample time to nominate their champions. The PA Wilds initiative is and has always been a people movement,” said Ta Enos, Executive Director of the PA Wilds Center. “The PA Wilds champions represent the very best of our rural communities each year; their enthusiasm is contagious and inspiring.”
Award winners will be recognized at a special dinner on November 7 at the Dubois Country Club.
