Selection Committee

This group of individuals sacrificed their personal time to outline the criteria by which these awards would be determined, the selection process, and the associated awards ceremony.  By agreeing to serve on the committee, these environmentally dedicated individuals forfeited their right to vote on any awards for which they might be nominated.  Special thanks is owed to each for their commitment to this process.
