The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is accepting applications for the 2014 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards. Completed applications must be received at DEP by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

The Governor's Environmental Excellence Awards Program is New Jersey’s premier awards program for recognizing outstanding environmental performance, programs and projects throughout the state. These awards recognize individuals, businesses, institutions, communities, organizations, educators, youth and others who have made significant contributions to environmental protection in New Jersey.

Since the awards program was established in 2000, 135 entities have been recognized. Nominations may be submitted for the following categories: clean air; healthy ecosystems; water resources; land conservation; healthy and sustainable communities; healthy and sustainable businesses; innovative technology; and the recently added “Environmentalist of the Year” category. In addition, the category for environmental education has been divided into two awards: one for adult-led educational initiatives and one for projects that are student-led or have succeeded due to a high level of student involvement.

The Governor's Environmental Excellence Awards Program is sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology, in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.

Award winners will be honored at a luncheon and program to be held in December. Last year’s event supporters included PSEG, Duke Farms, New Jersey Natural Gas, Atlantic County Utilities Authority and Greener by Design.

The 2014 application and other awards information can be found at www.nj.gov/dep/eeawards
