Know any environmentally-minded kids or teens? They might be eligible for recognition. Action For Nature, a San-Francisco-based non-profit, is currently soliciting nominations for its 2010 International Young Eco-Hero Awards, which it says "honor youth ages 8 to 16 for their outstanding accomplishments in environmental advocacy, environmental health, research and protection of the natural world."
Honorees receive up to $500 cash, an award certificate and tantalizing "other forms of recognition," which I'm hoping equates to a personalized bobble-head doll.
The application deadline is Feb. 28, 2010. Guidelines and applications are available at http://www.actionfornature.org/eco-hero/ecoheroawards.html
