I was contacted by the WWF today regarding the Earth Hour Awards. I might have mentioned that I was approached to be a prelim judge for the awards, which I accepted, but it looks like nominations and applications are at a manageable level for the WWF team.
Here is an extract of the email, which was lovely and with a welcome surprise in it. Thanks Kate for the correspondence.
We wanted to say a big thank you for your support of Earth Hour and helping spread the word through your blog. We also wanted to say thank you for generously offering your time to be a preliminary judge for the inaugural WWF Earth Hour Awards.”
“Instead of being a preliminary judge, we would very much like to encourage you to apply for an award yourself, specifically the Education Award. The Awards now close at midnight this Sunday 6 March.”
So, as I mentioned in a previous post, if you think I or others would make a worthy recipient, then pop on over to the Earth Hour Awards link and nominate me or anyone else in your community that you believe has gone ‘Beyond Earth Hour’.
Nominations and applications close at midnight, Sunday, March 6th, 2011. Go for it. There are so many people in our great country that deserve a nomination!
Congrats Gavin, that is great! You do a lot of great work in this space, I hope you are recognized for it!
