Vote for Sustainability Leaders

Anyone can vote for the seventh annual Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards, hosted by the Memnosyne Institute. Public voting begins in September, and the top three nominees will become the finalists. The final winners will be selected by a panel of judges from the North Texas green community and announced at the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards on November 15 at the Dallas Arboretum.

The Coke Buchanan Volunteer of the Year award for outstanding volunteer service to a green cause or organization is named for Memnosyne Institute center director Coke Buchanan, who co-organized the Oak Cliff Earth Day for the Memnosyne Institute, the parent nonprofit of Green Source DFW. He died earlier this year.

Categories include Environmental Reporting; Environmental Science and Innovation; Conservation Activist; Environmental Social Justice; and Green Project or Program (profit or nonprofit).
