The Emerging Environmental Leader Award will recognize a youth who demonstrates young environmental leadership, creativity and dedication to inspire others to adopt similar actions to protect the environment.
"Northeastern Pennsylvanians have greatly benefited from the fruits of collaboration, which can be seen every day in our communities," said Meg Welker, Sr. Environmental Professional at PPL and dinner planning committee chairperson. “Please help us identify those leading the charge so we can thank them for diligently working to improve our quality of life through environmental partnerships in our region.”
The Awards are open to any group, individual, company, program, or organization whose work has had a positive impact on the environment in the following counties; Bradford, Carbon, Columbia, Lackawanna, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming.
