In light of the rapidly changing situation we have decided to postpone the Lincolnshire Environmental Awards. We hope to be able to run the Awards in Autumn 2020. To all who have entered already, your application will be still be considered when they resume.
The only dedicated environmental awards in Lincolnshire
The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards for environmental excellence have been given every year since 1993. They are designed to recognise and celebrate the inspiring activities that are helping to improve the environment and encourage sustainability.
The Awards give community groups, schools, businesses and farmers an opportunity to demonstrate that they are playing their part in the sustainable development of the county.
Past winners have included village community groups that have created wildlife areas, schools that have grown their own vegetables, and farmers that have restored and planted hedges or created wetlands.
See all our previous winners here or click below for last year's Award winners.
How to enter
The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards are easy to take part in and free to enter. All you need to do is write a short description (200 - 300 words) describing your project or work and how it contributes to the environment.
If you think your business, community group, farm, school or young person is doing something great for the environment, then enter the awards - we love to hear about your environmental projects, and everyone has a chance of winning!
Deadline for entries: 31 March 2020
The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards and Lincolnshire Young Environmentalist Award are organised by the Rotary Club of Lindum, Lincoln in partnership with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
The patrons are the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Toby Dennis and the Bishop of Lincoln the Rt Revd Christopher Lowson. The late Professor David Bellamy (1933 - 2019) was a supporter and Patron of the Lincolnshire Environmental Awards from their beginning in 1993. He was an inspiration to everyone he met and without doubt helped to make the Awards what they are today.
The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards are also sponsored by local businesses without whom these Awards would not be possible. Find out more about our sponsors below.
