Seeking nominations for Sustain Dane’s Live Forward Award

Do you know a young individual or a team who is moving Dane County toward a better future? Someone who, in their professional or personal life, is actively making social and environmental change? Nominate them for Sustain Dane’s Live Forward Award! These individuals or teams may be rockstar volunteers, engaged neighbors, grassroots activists, political leaders, youth organizers, impactful educators, nonprofit professionals, visionary students, aspiring entrepreneurs... the possibilities are endless!

Sustain Dane’s Live Forward Award (formerly Badger Bioneer) celebrates local change-makers who are actively creating a more sustainable future in Dane County and beyond. This award is an exciting opportunity to elevate the sustainability innovation, stewardship and achievement happening in our own neighborhoods. This year, Sustain Dane is specifically highlighting the many contributions of young leaders (under age 30) to our sustainability movement!

Awardees will be chosen by a Selection Committee comprised of 30+ local leaders from across our community. Neighbors, professionals, activists and students will gather together at the Sustain Dane Summit on Friday, November 2 to celebrate and honor the 2018 awardees. All nominees will also be recognized at the Summit.

Please nominate an individual, group or team who…

  • Is actively working to transform Dane County into a healthy, thriving place for everyone.
  • Is creating a strong community, just economy, and healthy planet. The strongest applicants will hit on at least 2 of these sustainability themes.
  • Is under 30 years old, or groups that are led by and/or majority individual(s) under 30

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Nominations are due Monday, June 18. CLICK HERE to nominate!!

P.S. If you’re thinking about nominating someone who works with youth, perhaps consider nominating the young people they work with! Thank you.
