The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) is inviting Tennesseans to submit nominations for the 2022 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards.

“We are proud to recognize organizations that stand out in protecting our valuable natural resources in Tennessee,” Gov. Bill Lee said. “These awards honor those who are going above and beyond to responsibly protect and preserve Tennessee’s beauty and resources.”

The Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards include 10 unique categories: Agriculture and Forestry, Building Green, Clean Air, Energy and Renewable Resources, Environmental Education and Outreach, Materials Management, Natural Resource, Water Quality, Sustainable Performance, and Lifetime Achievement.

Any person, business, organization or agency, as long as it is located in Tennessee and completed the project during the 2021 calendar years, is eligible. All nominees must be in compliance with TDEC for at least three consecutive years. Self-nominations of nominees are encouraged.

“Many Tennesseans do our state a great service by protecting our environment and applying sustainable practices,” TDEC Commissioner David Salyers said. “We not only want these awards to recognize leaders in this effort but to offer examples for others to get involved.”  

A panel made up of academic, conservation, environmental, and academic professionals will determine the award recipients. They will be judged on the following criteria: program completion, innovation, public education, and project or program completion. The deadline to submit nominations is March 31, 2020. The summer of 2022 will see the announcement of the award recipients.
