The National Tree Trust, a national leader in programs supporting community
tree planting and education efforts, has established an award to honor
outstanding achievements in volunteerism and community forestry.
Applications are now being accepted for the Planting America's Future
Awards, which will be presented to three individuals or organizations that
have demonstrated success in mobilizing local citizens, business, government
and others in projects to improve their community through the use of
volunteers and trees. There are three award categories:
Youth Environmental Stewardship Award
The Youth Environmental Stewardship Award category honors an individual
under the age of 21. The winning individual will be the driving force
behind a tree-related community project that involved use of volunteers and
Success in Environmental Education Award
The Success in Environmental Education Award honors a "hands-on" education
program that best helps students, K-12, improve their knowledge of trees and
their role in our environment.
The Trammell Crow Community Partnership Award
The Community Partnership Award will honor an individual community's efforts
to improve itself through tree-planting and maintenance. The winning
project will best demonstrate the cooperation and partnership of volunteers,
consisting of local citizens, local businesses and local government.
Applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2002 and can be obtained at
www.nationaltreetrust.org or by calling 1-800-846-TREE ext. 21.
Planting America's Future Award winners will be notified by mail, and will
be honored at a ceremony in Salt Lake City, UT on September 22, 2002 at the
3rd Grassroots Summit. A cash prize of $1000 will be awarded to the winners
to be used for operating expenses of the featured program. Winners will
also receive an honorary tree plaque. Transportation and accommodations
will be provided for one representative to attend the Salt Lake City
ceremony (except for the Youth Initiative category where two representatives
will be accommodated if the recipient is a minor).
The National Tree Trust is a non-profit organization established in 1990
with programs to facilitate tree planting and maintenance through volunteer
action, and to educate Americans about the importance and value of trees.
