Guidelines for Award Nominations
Since 1997, Presbyterians for Earth Care (formerly PRC) has given awards annually to recognize individuals and groups/institutions for their forward thinking and leadership in caring for God's creation. Individuals receive the William Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award. Congregations, governing bodies, ecumenical agencies, and Presbyterian-related entities receive Restoring Creation Awards. Both of these awards are given to individuals and groups whose work for the environment is particularly praise-worthy and creative.
If you are a member of Presbyterians for Earth Care, you are welcome to nominate an awardee. For group awards, we generally look for award nominees within the presbytery or general region where the General Assembly or the PEC Conference (alternating years) will be located. This is so we can encourage as many members of the group as possible to be present for an in-person receipt for the award. (For 2012, the GA will be in Pittsburgh, and nominations for GA 2012 were closed on April 22, 2012 - Earth Day Sunday.)
