Annual Stewardship Awards
CARE for the Cape and Islands seek nominations annually from the community for their Business/Organization Stewardship Award and Youth Stewardship Award. The awards are presented each fall, usually during the CARE About a Clean Cape & Islands Summit.
To be considered the applicants must have shown a commitment to caring for the Cape and Islands and have adopted day-to-day practices that fit CARE’s mission to preserve and enhance its natural environment, culture or history. The youth award is presented to an individual or youth group who is age 18 or younger and exhibits the same commitment to caring for Cape Cod and the Islands.
Nominations are accepted between September 1 and October 30 and are to be submitted through this form. The nomination should include the business name or youth name, an explanation of how they fit the criteria for the award and contact information for the person submitting the nomination.
