Do you know a student or teacher who is going above and beyond inside and outside the classroom? Do you want to recognize someone who is working to better his or her community and local environment? The Chesapeake Bay Trust is seeking nominations for its 2014 Awards and Scholarship Program, which honors students, teachers and volunteers who are making a difference in their local communities and for the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust is a nonprofit grant-making organization committed to improving the Chesapeake Bay and local communities. Our grant initiatives focus on community outreach, environmental education and Bay restoration. The Trust awards more than $5 million a year to nonprofits and schools throughout Maryland to plant trees, clean up communities, restore shorelines and get out kids outside.

Currently the Trust is soliciting applications and/or nominations for five awards: Teacher of the Year, Student of the Year, Honorable Arthur Dorman Scholarship, Ellen Fraites Wagner Award and Melanie Teems Award. The winners of the Honorable Arthur Dorman and Student of the Year awards will receive $5,000 scholarships and the Teacher of the Year will be awarded a $2,500 grant to support their environmental education work.

 

Recipients for each will be announced during the Trust’s Legislative Reception in January 2014, where they will have an opportunity to present their exceptional work to their legislators, local leaders and supporters.  We want to celebrate the good work being done here in Maryland and around the Chesapeake Bay watershed and hope that you will help identify candidates who should be recognized for their contributions.  All applicants can complete the online application or be nominated by someone other than a family member. The deadline to apply is December 2, 2013 at 5:00 pm and more information can be found on our website, cbtrust.org.

Help us showcase all the good work being done to restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay.
