PA Wilds Now Seeking Nominations For 2022 PA Wilds Champion Awards

Do you know of an individual, organization, community, or businesses that in the last year has helped to grow and sustainably develop the outdoor recreation economy and nature tourism in the PA Wilds?

Nominate them for a PA Wilds Champion Award!  Nominations are due April 1.

“There are nine different award categories open for public nominations,” said Cathy Lenze, board member and Outreach Committee chair for the PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship, the nonprofit that coordinates the annual Champion of the PA Wilds Awards recognition events in coordination with the PA Wilds Planning Team. 

“We are seeking nominations which represent our incredible region in the PA Wilds!  This is an opportunity to show off your favorite places, your community leaders, your favorite local artists and so much more.”

The prestigious awards are typically presented during a banquet that convenes more than 250 businesses and community leaders from across Pennsylvania.  

The in-person banquet has been disrupted for two years in a row; however, PA Wilds Center forged forward in 2021 and the PA Wilds Champions were celebrated virtually and in small groups with county commissioners and the winners’ families.

“This year, we are hoping to celebrate the 2022 Champions at an outdoor event during the summer to reduce risks associated with the pandemic,” said Lenze. “We are excited to explore this format for our banquet event, but it means we will have an expedited nomination period, so we are looking forward to hearing from you!”

The Pennsylvania Wilds is a 13-county region that includes the counties of Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lycoming, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Warren, and northern Centre.
