2020 Governor’s Award Nominations Open October 15

Every spring, PEC is proud to co-host the Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence dinner along with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

Today, DEP announced it will begin accepting nominations for the 2020 awards later this month:

“These awards bring much-deserved recognition to environmental stewards who, project by project, improve Pennsylvania,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “Whether they’re boots on the ground or creators of innovative solutions that help lead us in new directions in environmental protection, their work greatly benefits all of us in the Commonwealth.”

The 2020 Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence is open to any Pennsylvania business, farm, government agency, educational institution, non-profit organization, and individual that has created, or participated in, the development of a project that promotes environmental stewardship. Individuals and organizations are invited to apply for the 2020 Awards for projects completed prior to the application window opening, on October 15, 2019.

Nominations will be accepted through December 17 and awardees will be notified by March 1, 2020. Watch the PEC website for announcements and ticketing information for the April 21st awards dinner in Harrisburg.
