Cox Communications, in partnership with The Trust for Public Lands, is accepting nominations for the 5th annual Cox Conserves Heroes program. This national program recognizes local environmental volunteers who are actively creating, preserving or enhancing outdoor spaces in their community. Nominations are being accepted through Friday, April 24th. One finalist from each of the following areas will be selected: Fairfax County/Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads and Roanoke.
These three regional finalists will compete for the title of Virginia’s 2015 Cox Conserves Hero. Each finalist will have an opportunity to tell their conservation story and highlight their great, green achievements. The public will vote online for their favorite finalist and select this year’s winner. Donations to local non-profit organizations totaling $20,000 will be made on behalf of the winner and finalists.
Roanoke has taken the top prize for the last two years – so it’s time to bring the conservation spotlight to Hampton Roads. If you know a conservation hero working to make Hampton Roads a cleaner, greener place; nominate them to be Virginia’s 2015 Cox Conserves Hero!
