The Source Maine Sustainability Awards, presented by the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram. The Source Awards are an annual recognition of Maine people who contribute to the state’s environmental well-being through consistent sustainable practices. From art supply stores to aqua-cultivators and from book publishers to prison guards, people making environmentally conscious choices in all sectors are vital to Maine’s economy and way of life.

Honorees will be profiled in the Maine Sunday Telegram and Central Maine Sunday on May 24.

Community knowledge is the key to finding our annual class of environmental superheroes.  Nominations were accepted until Friday, April 10.

Honors are determined by Portland Press Herald editors and judges from Maine’s sustainability and agricultural community. We are on the lookout for sustained, practical, replicable, scalable and outright inspirational environmental achievements in Maine, big and small.

Included in the celebration are the MOFGA Russell Libby Agricultural Scholars. These scholarships recognize  students and teachers who are pursuing careers in or promoting sustainable agriculture in Maine. Click here to learn more and apply. Applications are due Friday, April 24.
