12th Annual Environmental Community Service Award
$10,000 in Honorariums to be Awarded in 2017
The Environmental Community Service Award, presented by Wawa, 6abc, and the environmental law firm Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP (MGKF), celebrates more than a decade of supporting environmental programs that improve the local community. The goal of the Environmental Community Service Award is to recognize two schools (6th to 12th grades) for their outstanding programs that enhance and improve the quality of life in their communities as well as raise awareness of environmental concerns. Understanding the importance of encouraging schools to launch or sustain environmental programs, media partner 6abc will help increase awareness of the award with their audiences throughout the Delaware Valley.
Each year two schools receive a $5,000 honorarium to further their environmental programs. The application for this year’s Environmental Community Service Award is available online at Wawa, 6abc and Manko's websites. All applications must be signed by a school official and submitted by Monday, March 20, 2017. They should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Surprise presentations will be made at the winning schools prior to Earth Day, April 22, 2017.
