Award Nomination Form

Green Award Nomination

OneZone’s Green Award is the first-ever in Hamilton County to recognize those who are leading the way to a more sustainable future.

Businesses, non-profits, community organizations, individuals, schools and government agencies are invited to submit nominations. Applicants are considered for the Green Award by demonstrating projects or internal operations/practices that are environmentally responsible and that positively benefit the community.

Nominees will be judged by the Green Award Panel. Each panel member has extensive knowledge of “green” or sustainability issues.

Eligibility and Criteria

Eligible applicants include:
Local, state or federal governmental organizations.
Not-for-profit organizations.
Educational Institutions.
Applicants may submit specific projects for review and/or comprehensive practices and policies that have been implemented within the organization.

Eligible projects/practices must have been initiated within the past three years and have been completed by June 30, 2017 or have been fully operational for one year.

Note: Long term projects/practices (i.e., those initiated prior to 2007) may be considered if a new measurable environmental benefit has been achieved in the past three years and the project served as a model for other successful projects.
Nominees will be judged on the effect the projects/practices have on environmental quality and/or the uniqueness of the project and the positive effect it has on the community.

Companies may be nominated by other companies, individuals or themselves.

Nominees will be asked to provide a description and documentation of the project/program.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Green Award Panel which will submit recommended projects to the Awards Committee.
