Our Seeds of Change Award is back again this year! Last year at Sustainable Contra Costa’s Sixth Annual Leadership in Sustainability and Green Building Awards Gala, a number of teams and individuals were nominated to receive recognition for their hard work in the community and walk away with $500 to fund their ongoing efforts. Our 2014 winner was Contra Costa County Climate Leaders (4CL). Who do you think will win the award this year?
What’s unique about this award is the nominees get the opportunity to present their projects to the community. Out of all our wonderful applicants, five finalists will be chosen to prepare a small booth and presentation to share with gala attendees. As they mingle and participate in our auction, attendees will stop by the booths to hear more about what they do, then each person will put in his or her vote before the awards presentation commences.
We looked for individuals, groups, organizations, and schools that have embarked upon a project with an innovative angle that has the potential to make a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable impact on the community. Those who can clearly showcase their vision, communicate a concrete plan, and explain the benefits of their project for their target community will have a greater impact on gala attendees.
