The Lifetime Achievement in Environmental Education Award is presented for long-term, outstanding service and contribution to the field of environmental education in Minnesota. It is intended to recognize the efforts of those people who have had a large-scale, long-term impact in the field. These efforts may have taken the form of publications produced, legislation created, facilities developed, innovative curricula or programs developed, leadership provided to supporting organizations, funding acquired, or any other major contribution to the field.

This award is presented for outstanding, ongoing efforts in infusing environmental education into the school’s curriculum. Teachers from all subjects and grades are eligible.

Non-formal Environmental Educator of the Year:

Professional and volunteer educators who teach in non-school settings are eligible (i.e. nature centers, zoos, museums, conservation or agriculture agencies, etc.).

Student Environmental Stewardship Award:
This award is presented for exhibiting innovative and exemplary effort in the practice of environmental stewardship at the nominee’s school or community. Students in grade school through college level are eligible for this award.
