Environmental Excellence Awards
To apply to this wonderful award program, please click here for an application.
These awards have been designed to recognize outstanding transportation projects, processes,
and people who incorporate environmental stewardship into the planning and project development
processes using Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funding sources.
WHAT is the Environmental Excellence Awards Program?
This biennial program was developed by FHWA to honor those partners, projects, and processes
that excel in meeting growing transportation needs while protecting and enhancing the environment.
While working in partnership with States, organizations, businesses, and individuals, we at
FHWA encourage environmental stewardship and increased awareness of the successes we can achieve
by incorporating environmental excellence into our everyday work.
WHO is eligible to enter?
We accept nominations for any project, process, group, or individuals involved in a project
or process that has used FHWA funding sources to make an outstanding contribution to transportation
and the environment. Any organization, agency, group, or individual in the public, private,
or non-profit sectors may submit a nomination for the 2013 Environmental Excellence Awards.
Winning entries will be selected by an independent panel of judges having varying backgrounds,
disciplines, and expertise.
WHEN are the entries due?
Entries must be submitted by Friday, February 1, 2013.
