Entries are being invited to the Lincolnshire Young Environmentalist Award 2009. The Award recognises the enthusiasm, hard work and commitment of young people. It aims to foster children's sense of responsibility for their environment and reward schools, groups, clubs and individuals for the fantastic achievements that are being made.
Roger Pavey, Chairman of the Lincolnshire Environmental Awards said "People often complain about the attitudes of youngsters but there are young people out there doing wonderful things to help improve our environment, we want to know who they are and exactly what they are doing. The award is a great way of thanking them for their commitment and hard work in helping to safeguard our environment for the future. All entries in the Young Environmentalist and Lincolnshire Environmental Award must be in by 30 April 2009."
Entries can be from projects that cover litter, waste and recycling, energy, transport or biodiversity. They may have just started or could have been running for some time, as long as they demonstrate a positive contribution to the environment and are based in Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire or North-East Lincolnshire.
