Young Environmentalist

The Lincolnshire Young Environmentalist Award recognises the enthusiasm, hard work and commitment of young people.

The Young Environmentalist Award aims to foster children's sense of responsibility for their environment and reward schools, groups, clubs and individuals for the fantastic achievements that are being made.

If you’ve been involved with a project that has introduced positive changes that really make a difference, you should enter the awards. By doing so you may inspire others to follow in your footsteps.

Entries can be from projects that cover litter, waste and recycling, energy, transport or biodiversity. They may have just started or could have been running for some time. As long as it demonstrates a positive contribution to the environment.

Entries are welcome from:

  • Schools
  • Youth groups such as scouts and guides
  • Individuals (nominations are welcome)

In Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire.

Fill in our online form to enter.

The winner will receive a cash prize of £250 and the runner up a cash prize of £150. All finalists will receive £100.

If you know anyone who deserves an award, please let us know.

To be eligible for the Young Environmentalist Award entrants must be aged under 13 years old.
