HELP EARTH DAY CANADA RECOGNIZE LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL HEROES

Hometown Heroes

 

Earth Day Canada has launched the 2015 Hometown Heroes Award Program!

This program recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders at the community level with a youth, individual, group and small business award to further their outstanding efforts.

The Hometown Heroes Award Program, established by Earth Day Canada (EDC) in 2004, recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders, groups and small businesses who foster meaningful, long-term community awareness and action. The program is made possible through a committed partnership with Mill Street Brewery and the RBC Foundation. Heroic candidates can win the Youth Hometown Heroes Award–a $5,000 cash prize that can be donated to a local environmental group/cause of their choice or be put towards their post-secondary studies in the form of a scholarship; the Individual Hometown Heroes Award—a $10,000 cash-prize to donate to a local environmental group/cause of their choice; the Group Hometown Heroes Award—a $10,000 cash-prize to support their work; or the Small Business Hometown Heroes Award—a $5,000 cash-prize that must be used by the business to make an operational change that results in the business lessening their environmental impact, and permission from EDC to use the award and the EDC logo for one year to help market and promote the business and/or an approved product. To date, EDC and its partners have recognized 115 Hometown Heroes across Canada. 2015 Hometown Heroes nominations must be postmarked by June 30, 2015.
