VOTE for People's Choice 'Signs of Sustainability' Awards for Tompkins County
Sustainable Tompkins invites you to nominate someone for the People’s Choice 'Signs of Sustainability' Award...comments share
Who inspired you over the past year with their efforts to create a more sustainable Tompkins County? Do you know a young person bucking the trend of consumerism? A business looking out for the broader interests of the community? Perhaps a senior citizen speaking up against pollution? Or an organization making progress on the interlinked goals of community well being, ecological stewardship, and a resilient local economy?
You can honor their work by nominating them for recognition in our annual community sustainability awards. The People’s Choice Signs of Sustainability will be selected through an online poll of community members who nominate those they believe made a contribution in the past year toward making ours a more sustainable and just community. Nominees and the top vote getters will be announced at the annual Earth Day Ithaca celebration on Sunday, April 19, 12-5 pm, at The Space.
Voting is simple. Categories will be for sustainability-enhancing activities by a 1) Organization, 2) Business, 3) Individual or 4) Youth (<21). We will be looking for nominees in a wide range of sectors: Transportation, Food Systems, Energy & Climate, Buildings & Infrastructure, Democracy & Social Justice, Arts & Culture, Health & Well Being, Waste Reduction, Resilient Economy, Community Development, and Natural Resource Conservation.
You can vote up to 5 times. Polls will be open March 23 through April 8.
