We always give the Green Source DFW Community Judges a challenging task. Every year, we receive so many outstanding nominations for the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards that it can be difficult narrowing the results to a few among a slate of impressive candidates. This year, we have two categories that resulted in a tie. 

We'll be sharing more about the honorees in the coming weeks. For now, here are the 2022 awards recepients:

• Environmental Justice — Kathryn Bazan

• Environmental Educators — Suzanne Tuttle and Kim Aman

• Next Generation —Akash Munshi and Brand Richter

• Coke Buchanan Volunteer of the Year — Julie Ann Fineman

• Unsung Hero — John Wilt

There will also be some surprise specialty awards to be announced during the ceremony!

The honorees will be feted at the annual green awards gala, hosted by Green Source DFW and its parent nonprofit the Memnosyne Institute, on Sunday, Dec. 4, at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Tickets for the awards cost $25. Event-goers can peruse the gardens before the awards if they purchase a bundled ticket for $35.

Event-goers can also purchase tickets to an outdoor holiday exhibit hosted by FWBG and BRIT called Lightscape, featuring a one-mile illuminated path winding through the Garden. Entry to Lightscape requires an additional ticket, which must be purchased in advance online for $18-$28. 

The GSDFW Awards were founded in 2012. See previous winners.
