Halton Region is now accepting applications for the Halton Environmental Awards Program. The Awards Program consists of The Halton Youth Awards for Environment Excellence and The Halton Environmental Scholarship Awards. Submissions for either award require an essay of 800-1000 words. Evaluations of the applications are heavily weighted on the essay portion and collateral materials including two testimonials. The deadline for applications is March 2. Applicants can submit their essays at the Halton Regional Headquarters, 1151 Bronte Road in Oakville. Award winners are invited to the next Bell/Chairman's Breakfast On The Environment, being held on Friday, April 20. Complete details are available at www.halton.ca. The Halton Youth Awards for Environmental Excellence is open to all Halton elementary and secondary students and provides an opportunity to win $500 for their school. The Halton Environmental Scholarship Awards are open to youth who are, or will be pursuing post secondary studies with an emphasis on the environment. Offering added incentive this year, each scholarship award in this category is for $1,000. An increase of $500 from last year's awards. Halton Region presents the Chair's Breakfast and the scholarship programs in conjunction with the Chairman's Round Table On The Environment-- a working group involving individuals from corporate and community sectors. The group provides direction to the Region for both awards and the Breakfast. The group will also review all applications and determine the award and scholarship recipients.
