Love Thy 'Nati Awards

The Love Thy ‘Nati Awards​ recognize those who have demonstrated environmental stewardship in our community. The competition is concerned, specifically, with innovative projects and community events that reduce litter, further recycling and beautification efforts, or address quality of life and sustainability issues related to overall community improvement. Judges will select the top three projects, and those winners will receive a $500 cash prize to be reinvested into the community.

Deadline to apply is February 1, 2022.

Winners will be announced at the 2022 Love thy 'Nati Celebration on February 19th at the Woodward Theater.
