The Young Environmentalist of the Year Award is designed to honor Delaware Students whose actions have resulted in the protection, restoration or enhancement of Delaware’s natural resources through one or more of the following means:

  • Demonstrating Environmental Stewardship
  • Initiating an Innovative Project
  • Increasing Public Awareness
  • Demonstrating Environmental Ethics

Teachers, classmates, parents, club or group leaders and others are encouraged to nominate Delaware students who have shown concern for Delaware’s natural resources and are residents of Delaware.

Nominations will be accepted between May 1 and June 3, 2005 and must be based on projects that have taken place between July 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005.

A winner will be chosen from each of the following categories where award-quality projects are submitted:

  • Elementary, for students in grades 1-4
  • Middle school, for students in grades 5-8
  • High school, for students in grades 9-12

A $100 check and a gift certificate for the Delaware State Parks will be awarded to each category winner in recognition of his or her contribution to the community. Winners will be honored in a special ceremony at Governor’s Day at the Delaware State Fair, July 28, 2005.

The award was established in honor of Dr. Edwin H. Clark II, who served as Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control from 1989 until 1993. DNREC staff contributed funding for the awards. This is the twelfth year of the program, which is being coordinated through the DNREC Office of Public Affairs.
