Aquarion seeks nominees for Environmental Champion Awards

The Aquarion Water Company is again seeking to recognize adults, students, small and large businesses, and nonprofits whose volunteer efforts have protected or improved Connecticut’s natural resources — its air, water, soils or plant and wildlife communities.  

For the eighth year, the company will select winners of its Aquarion Environmental Champion Awards in five categories: Adult, Youth, Small Business, Large Business and Nonprofit Organization.

“There are many organizations and people throughout Connecticut who are dedicated environmental stewards that work tirelessly to preserve Connecticut’s natural resources,” said Charles V. Firlotte, president and CEO of Aquarion Water Company. “It’s a privilege and honor to recognize them for their outstanding commitment, and we look forward to celebrating their accomplishments during the 2018 Aquarion Environmental Champion Awards ceremony.”

Awards will include a $1,000 award for the student winner and $2,500 contributions to environmental nonprofit organizations selected by the other winners. Aquarion will honor winners on June 2, 2018 at a special event to be held at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.

The deadline for nominations is May 1, 2018. Self-nominations and re-nominations are welcome.
