Huntingdonshire Green Heart Community Awards 2013

Huntingdonshire District Council is once again seeking applications for the annual Green Heart Community Awards.  These awards recognise the groups and individuals who have been working so hard over the past 12 months helping to improve the environment in Huntingdonshire.

Having already held three successful Green Heart Awards we are hoping that this year’s will be even bigger.  The residents in Huntingdonshire have been busy in helping to improve our environment and we want to recognise and celebrate their achievements in 2013.

Hearing about other people’s project is both inspirational and motivational for the community and that’s why we want you to shout about your great achievements.

We want to find out about what has motivated the people of Huntingdonshire to take environmental action, what has been helpful to make their projects successful and what challenges they have faced and overcome along the way.

These awards recognise those community groups, individuals, schools and businesses who are getting together and making a real change in their community by reducing their environmental footprint. From energy projects, wildlife and nature schemes to sustainable growing schemes and environmental awareness raising events, to getting ideas off the ground, there are people out there who are making a difference, people with bright, innovative and scalable ideas.

Entries are invited under six main categories:

  • Best primary school
  • Best secondary school/college
  • Best business environmental project
  • Green volunteer of the year
  • Best wildlife or nature initiative
  • Best Environmental Project

An awards ceremony will be held where four short-listed nominations for each category will be invited to attend, with winners being announced at the event

You may nominate yourself or be put forward by a third party, and anyone can enter as long as they can demonstrate that they have managed, or been involved with an environmental project that has engaged and benefited their community
