|Bethesda Magazine & Bethesda Green’s 2017 Green Awards
Celebrate Creative Change: Do you know a Green Champion?
Creating a sustainable economy can only happen if we all commit to create change in our personal lives, our households, our neighborhoods, and our places of work. Change and impact takes perseverance often rooted and enhanced by “thinking outside of the box”. This is often the story behind the Green Champions of this region.
Storytelling is the oldest and most effective form of communication. The Bethesda Magazine Green Awardees will tell our green community their stories at the Bethesda Green 2017 Gala – in celebration! Save the Date: October 12th at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.
We seek your help to find Green Award nominees. The nominating window is open from now until June 30th.
Nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Bethesda Magazine Green Awards, held in partnership with Bethesda Green. The Green Awards recognize businesses, non-profits, communities, schools and individuals that are leading the fight to protect the environment.
