It’s not too late to get your entry in for the Lincolnshire Environmental Awards. The deadline is Thursday 31 March 2016.

The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards, including the Lincolnshire Young Environmentalist Awards, are open to everyone and the organisers are urging groups, schools and businesses to get their entries in before the deadline on Thursday 31 March 2016. To enter all you need to do is write 200 – 300 words about what you do and your commitment to the environment and send it in. Or if you know of community group, business or school who are doing good things for the environment encourage them to enter.

“Entering the competition is a worthwhile and enjoyable experience, it’s a way to share best practice and it may inspire others to take action themselves” commented Chairman of the Award scheme and Lindum Rotary Club member, Roger Pavey.

Tips on entering

  • Remember everyone has a chance of winning
  • Dedication and enthusiasm is favoured over financial inputs – be sure not to undervalue your achievements
  • Don’t be put off thinking your efforts are not up to a ‘set’ standard.
  • Imagine you’re the judge – would your application impress you? Think about this when completing your entry. Keep your points punchy and relevant.
  • Consider the 5 Ws – Who, What, Why, Where, When.
  • Our judges are used to comparing businesses and projects of very different types and sizes.
  • If you can't find a category to match what you do, please get in touch with us and we'll give you guidance.
