MEDIA ADVISORY: ALBERTA EMERALD FOUNDATION TO ANNOUNCE 27th ANNUAL EMERALD AWARDS RECIPIENTS

Albertan EcoHeroes will receive prestigious environmental award.

On June 5 at 4 p.m. at Calgary’s Theatre Junction Grand, hopeful finalists will join the Alberta Emerald Foundation (AEF), its sponsors, volunteers and other members from the local community for the announcement of the 27th Annual Emerald Awards.

A panel of knowledgeable third-party judges with cross-sectoral experience rose to the challenge of narrowing down the brilliant examples of innovation and environmental achievement nominated this year for the uniquely-Albertan award. A maximum of three nominees in each of the Emerald Award categories have been selected as a finalist. Only one per category will take home the award.

“We are the only Foundation in the country to recognize the important work of environmental leaders across all sectors,” says Andy Etmanski, Chair of the Board, AEF. “By honouring and elevating the ingenuity, dedication and hard work of these individuals and organizations, we inspire others to follow their example, benefiting all Albertans with a healthier and cleaner environment.”
