The Source Maine Sustainability Awards, presented by the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram are an annual recognition of Maine people who contribute to the state’s environmental well-being through consistent practices. From innovative biologists to community cleanup crews and from organic farmers to solar panel manufacturers, people making environmentally conscious choices in all sectors are vital to Maine’s economy and way of life.

Community knowledge is the key to finding our annual class of environmental superheroes. We are on the lookout for sustained, practical, replicable, scalable and outright inspirational environmental achievements, big and small.

Nominations are accepted until Monday, March 1. Honorees will be profiled on Sunday, Apr. 18 in the Maine Sunday Telegram.

This year, honors are determined from reader nominations and Portland Press Herald editorial decisions.

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.
