Adopt-A-Stream Volunteer, Trainer, and Watershed Award Nominations

You may nominate yourself or someone else. Nominations should include a short narrative describing why the individual(s) and/or group deserve(s) the award, how they furthered Adopt-A-Stream's five main goals, and how they excelled in the protection of Georgia's waterways. The narrative section is critical for judges' review and should be a minimum of 250 words. Supporting materials such as photographs are accepted and encouraged.

The goals of Georgia Adopt-A-Stream are, 1) increase public awareness of the State's nonpoint source pollution and water quality issues, 2) collect quality baseline water quality data, 3) encourage volunteers to take observations of their adopted site and surrounding environment, 4) encourage partnerships between citizens and their local government, and 5) provide citizens with the tools and training to evaluate and protect their local waterways.
