NEW: State Seeking Applications for Excellence in Environmental Education

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

 

The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) is now seeking applications for the 2013 Excellence in Energy and Environmental Education Awards. The office says that those who inspire their community are encouraged to submit by the March 22, 2013 deadline.

“With this program, we recognize teachers and students who inspire their communities by exploring our most challenging environmental and energy issues,” said EEA Secretary Rick Sullivan.

All public and private Massachusetts schools (K-12) that offer energy and environmental education programs are eligible to apply for the Secretary’s Award.

Those who wish to submit an application may do so online.

Sullivan highlighted the importance these individuals play in the community, saying, “These educators and students work hard each day to learn about adopting clean energy sources, protecting wildlife, recycling and conserving natural resources.”

EEA Secretary Rick Sullivan will present awards this spring to Massachusetts teachers and students involved in school-based programs that promote environmental and energy education.

In 2012, Secretary Sullivan recognized schools and nonprofit organizations from 24 communities across the state for their work on issues including recycling, energy conservation, ocean science, wildlife conservation and alternative fuels.

The Secretary’s Advisory Group on Energy and Environmental Education will review applications through mid-April. Qualified entrants are invited to attend a formal award ceremony with Secretary Sullivan at the State House later in the spring.
