HOW IT WORKS
A public voting period will start in September with all of the nominees on the ballot on GreenSourceDFW.org. The top three nominees with the most votes will become the finalists. The final winners will be selected by a panel of judges from the North Texas green community. Winners will be announced at the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards on Nov. 15, 2018 at the Dallas Arboretum.
Other specialty awards will also be given during the ceremony and speakers will be announced later this summer.
The Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards is a great way to showcase your business or organization before the North Texas green community. See sponsorship levels here.
