The Clean Water America Alliance (Alliance) is accepting nominations for the 2012 U.S. Water Prize. The Prize recognizes individuals and institutions that have taken the initiative, shown innovation, and contributed to greater water sustainability. Applications should be submitted via the website www.USWaterPrize.org. The deadline for nomination is December 7, 2011.
Launched in 2010, the U.S. Water Prize seeks to recognize successful efforts in protecting and improving the health of US watersheds. Past winners include the City of Los Angeles, Milwaukee Water Council, National Great Rivers Research & Education Center, New York City Department of Environmental Protection, and Pacific Institute.
The Clean Water America Alliance created the U.S. Water Prize to encourage, celebrate, and honor individuals and institutions that develop projects or programs that are innovative and have a clear impact on the advancement of water sustainability. Individuals, institutions, and organizations whose project or initiative advances holistic, watershed-based approaches to water quality and quantity challenges may apply. Initiatives may be in education, public awareness, research, technology, water resource management, or policy development as long as they address issues surrounding water as a finite, reusable and sustainable resource.
Up to five winners will be celebrated in a special ceremony held during April, 2012, in Washington, D.C. For more information, contact Kristyn Abhold at email@example.com.
