Meet the nominees!
Get to know the nominees for this year's 2023 Sustain Charlotte Awards!
We recognize organizations and individuals 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.
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.
Sarah Hazel, Heather Bolick, Kristina Held, Kevin Raley, John Holmes, Tina Katsanos, Barbara Bleiweis, Harrison Tucker, Jonathan Utrup, Sam Spencer, Katie Lloyd, Clint Grant, Tracia Black, Marjorie Parker, Leonie Eisenring, Mark Mistretta
