It's that time of year again.
The Park Forest Environment Commission is calling on residents to nominate someone for the Katherine “Katie” Armstrong Sustainability Award. Nomination forms must be submitted by Nov. 15.
The Katherine “Katie” Armstrong Sustainability Award highlights a person who commits to conscious sustainability practices. Park Forest Sustainability Coordinator Carrie Malfeo said the award dates back to 2018 and is a great way to show off people and businesses in the company who are doing their part to lessen their carbon footprint.
"The Environment Commission started the Sustainability Award five years ago to advocate and celebrate Park Forest residents, businesses, churches, and community gardens," Malfeo said. "Any entity that practices environmental initiatives like installing rain gardens, planting natives, installing solar, or composting, just to name a few, can be nominated. All these actions are important to support a healthy Village now and for future generations."
Residents can nominate someone for the award submitting a nomination form here.
Close to 20 award winners have been named since the award’s inception. A full list of winners can be found here.
