Environmental Initiative is now accepting nominations for the 2015 Environmental Initiative Awards. Each year, this program honors projects that have achieved extraordinary environmental results by harnessing the power of partnership. From large statewide efforts to small-scale locally based projects, many of Minnesota’s most innovative environmental efforts have succeeded as a result of collaboration.

Nominations for partnership-based environmental projects will be accepted until Friday, February 27 in these six categories:

  • Community Action
  • Energy and Climate
  • Environmental Education
  • Food Stewardship
  • Natural Resources
  • Sustainable Business


Winners will be announced “Academy Award Style” on Thursday, May 21 at Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis. 

Nominations are open to partnership-based projects that demonstrate concrete results and environmental outcomes in Minnesota. Project nominations may only be submitted in one category and self-nominations are welcome.  Click here to submit a nomination.
