Nominate your Earth Care Hero

Who Is Your Earth Care Hero?

Do you know anyone who has coordinated energy upgrades at their church, or used artistic talent to help form an art collective of liturgical arts for worship and creation? Do you know of an organization that partnered with 10 Presbyterian congregations to be a constant presence on the issue of creation care, sustainability and intentional stewardship? These two individuals and one organization have received annual PEC Awards in the past.

Presbyterians and other people of faith across the country are taking remarkable actions to show how much they care for God’s creation. Presbyterians for Earth Care is pleased to honor those individuals and churches/organizations that are making a positive difference with our Annual Awards, both to thank them and to inspire others to take similar actions. We invite you to make a nomination by Saturday, March 31 for PEC’s 2018 awards that will be presented at the PEC Luncheon on June 19 at General Assembly in St. Louis, Missouri.
Members of or donors to Presbyterians for Earth Care are entitled to make nominations. If you aren’t already a PEC member, you can join or make a donation now. However, an individual does not need to be a Presbyterian to be nominated for an award.

You may nominate individuals for the William Gibson Eco-Justice Award or the Emerging Earth Care Leader Award (for 18-30 year olds). Congregations, governing bodies, ecumenical agencies, and Presbyterian-related entities may be nominated for the Restoring Creation Award. The qualifications for each of these awards are on our website.

If you know of a worthy and creative individual or church/organization, you are invited to make a nomination online. Take a look at our previous award winners to get an idea of who would be a worthy nominee.

You may also mail in a nomination form to PEC, PO Box 9064, Asheville, NC 28815. Nominations close on March 31.

PEC is grateful for your care of God’s creation and for contemplating an individual or organization that deserves to be honored for their good stewardship of our common home.
