The Gulf of Mexico Program is currently soliciting entries for the 2008 Gulf Guardian Awards Program. The deadline for applications is May 1, 2008. The Gulf of Mexico Program partnership developed the Gulf Guardian Awards in 2000 as a way to recognize and honor the businesses, community groups, individuals and agencies that are taking positive steps to keep the Gulf healthy, beautiful and productive.
The Gulf Guardian Award exemplifies what the Gulf of Mexico Program stands for -- innovative solutions that occur when we pool resources and look for creative ways to tackle the region’s complex coastal environmental challenges in ways that also positively impact our quality of life and economic well-being. The Gulf Program recognizes a first, second and third winner in seven categories: Business; Government; Civic/Nonprofit Organizations; Youth/Education Partnerships; Individual; and Binational, which jointly honors U.S/Mexico Partnership programs and projects.
