Applications invited for Aberdeen EcoCity Awards
The hunt is on to find Aberdeen's best green initiatives, as entries are invited for the 2013 Aberdeen EcoCity Awards.
The awards are designed to recognise and celebrate the green initiatives of local people doing their bit to look after the environment in Aberdeen, no matter how big or small the project.
From litter picking to greenspace improvements; from carbon cutting to waste reduction, these awards make sure local people are recognised for their contribution to green initiatives which enhance the environment and help make a difference to the quality of life in the city.
This year entries are invited for the Eco Learning Award, which is aimed at city schools, colleges and universities for eco projects or education work, and the Community Award, open to community groups, charities and the voluntary sector.
Prizes of £1,000 are available for the winner of each category to spend on a green initiative of their choice. The runner up of each category will receive £250.
To enter the awards, download and complete an application form via the Your Environment section of the council website.
This can be accessed by searching for Your Environment using the A-Z listing at www.aberdeencity.gov.uk.
Applicants can also get in touch on 01224 522792 or by emailing email@example.com.
To be eligible for an award, the environmental project must have taken place during August 2012 to July 2013. The closing date for entries is 15 November.
