Parks & Trails New York is seeking nominations for its 2013 Park & Trail Recognition Awards. The awards recognize the leadership, creativity, and donation of time, talent, and materials behind many of New York’s parks and trails.
Awards will be given in five categories. Three awards recognize contributions to planning, design, construction, management, promotion, and/or public involvement for a park or trail project or program: the Public Leadership, Volunteer Service, and Corporate Partnership Awards. The Get Outside Award celebrates efforts to promote increased physical activity among community members through use of a park or trail. The open-ended Outside the Box Award recognizes unique and creative park or trail efforts.
More information on the awards nomination, with full descriptions of award categories, can be found on the Parks & Trails New York website, www.ptny.org. The deadline for submitting nominations is March 26, 2013. Winners will be announced May 15, 2013.
