Do you know someone who has demonstrated excellent commitment to teaching how to be a smarter energy consumer or how solar or wind energy generation work? Maybe your friend is active in a school organization dedicated to teaching students how to reduce their carbon footprint or build an energy efficient green roof. If so, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs wants to know about it!

This spring, Secretary Richard K. Sullivan Jr. will honor Massachusetts teachers and students who are involved in school-based programs that promote environment and energy education.

But the deadline for nominations is fast approaching. Applications to nominate your classmate or teacher are due this coming Monday, March 28.

Applications will be reviewed through mid-April. Teachers and students who qualify will be invited to attend a formal award ceremony at the State House in Boston later in the spring.

Please apply online here or contact Meg Colclough at 617-626-1110 or meg.colclough@state.ma.us.
