Subject: Call for Nominations - NOAA Environmental Hero Awards

Dear colleagues:

Nominations are now being accepted for the *2010* NOAA Environmental 
Heroes Awards. This is a great way to recognize and honor those non-NOAA 
individuals and organizations that have made a difference by 
volunteering their time to help NOAA carry out its mission 
<http://www.noaa.gov/about-noaa.html>. Not only do the awards raise 
awareness about NOAA's mission, but they also encourage others to 
participate in NOAA volunteer programs 

The awards will be presented to the Environmental Heroes in conjunction 
with Earth Day events in April *2010* and recipients will be featured on 
the NOAA Earth Day Web page <http://www.noaa.gov/earthday>.
Nominating an individual or organization is easy!* Simply read the 
instructions and complete the attached nomination form and share them 
with NOAA staff in your line office. Nomination materials also can be 
found at http://www.noaa.gov/earthday/nomination.html.

Please note the following deadlines:

      Environmental Heroes by posting them on the NOAA Earth Day Web
      page <http://www.noaa.gov/earthday> by this date.

Although we have education partners in our line offices, this is a 
different way (through the education office) to nominate someone or an 
organization. These awards started in 1995 and have only skipped one 
year (last year); we have had education-related winners nearly every 
year. You may submit either to your line office or through me.... or 
both. Two years ago we had two winners which were nominated jointly 
through Education and their respective line office.
