The City of Encinitas Environmental Commission is pleased to announce its new Environmental Award Program (EAP). This program recognizes and congratulates individuals, organizations, and businesses in the city for exceptional environmental achievements. The award winners in each of the two categories will receive an award crafted by an Encinitas artist.
2 Artist Commissions:
Artists who live in Encinitas are sought to submit proposals for environmentally-themed artwork. Proposal guidelines are available online, on the city website: www.encinitasca.gov/envawards. An art jury will select two artists for commissions of $500 for each award. Thus, the EAP not only raises environmental awareness, but it also supports the local arts community.
Deadline to Apply: Your proposal must be received by Thursday, July 23, 5:00 pm.
More Information: If you have questions about the artist solicitation, please email Joy Lyndes, on the Environmental Commission.
About The Environmental Award Program:
The Encinitas EAP will present two awards annually, one for individuals or nonprofit
organizations, and one for businesses. Candidates are peer-nominated and must be
Encinitas residents or located in Encinitas. Winners will be selected by a jury of
recognized environmental leaders. Candidates may be nominated as late as September 17 online, on the city website.
The EAP is administered by the City's Environmental Commission. Matching funds have been generously donated by the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project. Surfing Madonna holds its popular 5K, 10K and 10-Mile runs at Moonlight Beach on October 24, and has granted EAP stage time for its award ceremony. Surfing Madonna ("Save the Ocean") and the EAP are closely aligned in their goals. The Encinitas EAP is the first award of its kind in San Diego County, and is one of few in the United States.
