Nominate a person, project or organization!

Do you know a person, building project, business, government agency, young leader or nonprofit that deserves to be honored for advancing smart growth and sustainability in Charlotte? Nominate them for a Sustain Charlotte Award! You can also nominate an individual, nonprofit, business or community group for Mecklenburg County's Recycling Excellence Award. This award is sponsored by Mecklenburg County Solid Waste as part of its waste reduction and recycling education programs. 

We recognize nominees who cut across silos to holistically advance smart growth and sustainability (as defined by criteria in the nomination form). Entries will be judged by an independent panel of local Sustain Charlotte members who will evaluate each nominee on the extent to which they meet the criteria listed. All people, projects, and organizations nominated must be located in the greater Charlotte area.

About the nomination process:

The nomination process is open to the public, which means we invite nominations from any community member — and, importantly, Sustain Charlotte does not make any of the nominations ourselves. All nominations are due by February 28

In early April, we will announce the names of all nominees. We will announce the winners at the 2023 Sustain Charlotte Awards on April 27, 2023.  

The purpose of this event is to highlight the organizations and individuals in our community who are working toward sustainability and smart growth and by their actions, inspire others to do the same. It's not just about who wins!

You can also nominate an individual, nonprofit, business or community group for Mecklenburg County's Recycling Excellence Award. This award is sponsored by Mecklenburg County Solid Waste as part of its waste reduction and recycling education programs.
