The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking nominations of individuals, businesses and organizations for its Environmental Champion Awards through Feb. 3.

The EPA recognizes and honors environmental trailblazers each year that have contributed significantly to improving the environment and protecting public health.

“EPA’s prestigious Environmental Champion Award recognizes the hard work, vision and courage exhibited by local leaders who are committed to environmental protection,” said Catherine McCabe, deputy regional administrator. “Everyone is encouraged to nominate people who are stellar leaders in this arena.”

Winners will be honored at an award ceremony this spring in Manhattan.
