Do you have a K-12 child or grandchild who has been working on an environmental stewardship project? Do you have a young friend who is? If so, “the application period is now open for the 2018 President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) program. The PEYA program recognizes outstanding environmental stewardship projects by K-12 youth, promoting awareness of our nation’s natural resources and encouraging positive community involvement. Winners of this year’s awards will be invited to a ceremony in Washington, D.C. in mid-2019, and have their project mentioned on EPA’s website.
EPA will select up to two winners in each of EPA’s 10 Regions – one regional winner for Grades K-5 and one regional winner for Grades 6-12. All student projects must be sponsored by at least one adult over the age of 21.
The application and eligibility information are available at: https://www.epa.gov/education/presidents-environmental-youth-award.
Applications are due February 1, 2019.
For questions, please contact PEYA@epa.gov”
