Governors Environmental Stewardship Awards

The Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards are presented annually to recognize outstanding achievements by individuals, businesses, organizations, educational institutions and agencies for successful environmental projects and conservation measures. 

The awards are designed to bring about a greater knowledge and awareness of effective practices and projects and to give proper recognition to those persons and organizations that make outstanding contributions to the natural resources of their community and the state. The awards also promote leadership by example in order to increase promotion, protection and conservation of the natural resources of the State of Tennessee and its wildlife, forests, soils, air, water, natural heritage, parks and recreation. 

The Tennessee Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards are the most prestigious environmental and conservation awards in the state. For more than 20 years, the awards have been presented to individuals and organizations making significant contributions to the protection and improvement of our natural resources and wildlife.
