Applications Now Accepted for the President’s Environmental Youth Award

The application period is now open for the 2018 President’s Environmental Youth Award (PEYA) program. The PEYA program recognizes outstanding environmental stewardship projects by K-12 youth, promoting awareness of our nation’s natural resources and encouraging positive community involvement. Winners of this year’s awards will be invited to a ceremony in Washington, D.C. in mid-2019, and have their project mentioned on EPA’s website.

EPA will select up to two winners in each of EPA’s 10 Regions – one regional winner for Grades K-5 and one regional winner for Grades 6-12. All student projects must be sponsored by at least one adult over the age of 21.

The application and eligibility information are available at: https://www.epa.gov/education/presidents-environmental-youth-award.

Applications are due February 1, 2019.

For questions, please contact PEYA@epa.gov.
