[ARCHIVED] Reminder: Call for Submissions for New Sustainable Middleton Awards



November 29, 2022


Do you know of any individuals, businesses, or organizations in Middleton that have been making a positive difference to help make our community more sustainable?


After 81% of Middleton voters overwhelmingly called for climate change action, Middleton’s Common Council adopted a resolution with goals for ending community wide use of fossil fuels. To meet these goals, a major effort is needed to promote renewable energy and to reduce energy consumption through conservation and efficiency.


To help raise awareness to meet this challenge, Middleton’s Sustainability Committee is launching a “Sustainable Middleton Awards” program. This awards program will recognize individuals, businesses, and organizations that have taken significant sustainability actions over the past year or more. Actions being considered include: Energy (renewables, efficiency, or conservation); Land stewardship; Environmental education; Food; Transportation; Waste reduction; Water conservation and runoff reduction. These awards are also meant to inspire and motivate other residents, businesses, community groups, and non-profits to implement similar sustainable actions. 


Applications for the 2022 awards can be found at the City’s Sustainability website, Applications are due by January 31, 2023, with awards given to selected recipients in April
