Nominations Solicited for Clean Air Awards

National Park News

Entries currently are being accepted for EPA's sixth annual Clean Air Excellence Awards. The Clean Air Excellence Awards program is open to both public and private entities in the United States. There are five categories in which a program, project, or technology may be entered: Clean Air Technology Community Development/Redevelopment Education/Outreach Regulatory/Policy Innovations Transportation Efficiency Innovations Award-winning entries are programs, projects, or technologies that directly or indirectly (i.e., by encouraging actions) reduce emissions of criteria pollutants or hazardous/toxic air pollutants; are innovative and unique; provide a model for others to follow; and result in positive outcomes that are continuing/sustainable. In addition to the five award categories described above, the Clean Air Excellence Awards program annually recognizes up to one individual for outstanding achievement, demonstrated leadership, and a lasting commitment to promoting clean air and helping to achieve better air quality. The candidate should be an innovative leader in his or her field and demonstrate a lifetime of achievement in promoting clean air. A third party must nominate candidates for this award. Applications must be submitted as hard copies and must be postmarked by August 31, 2005. Award winners will be honored at a ceremony held in Washington, D.C., in early spring. The Clean Air Excellence Awards program is sponsored by EPA's Office of Air and Radiation. The program was suggested by the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, a senior-level federal advisory committee that provides advice to EPA on air issues.
