NOMINATIONS are now open for the 2017 Southland Community Environment Awards.
Environment Southland operations director Jonathan Streat said judges were looking for people and projects which enhanced, protected and showcased Southland’s environment.
“There are so many people who are active in their own patch of the province, looking after and nurturing what we have, either through educational projects, sustainable practice or innovative thinking. If you’re one of them, we want to hear from you,” he said.
Awards would be presented in seven categories – individual, farming, school, community group, commercial, innovator and achiever. The same project can be nominated in up to two categories.
Award nominations close on August 18. Winners will be announced on November 1.
