Cox Communications, in partnership with The Trust for Public Land, and in honor of Earth Day, is seeking nominations for environmental volunteers in Cox’s service areas in Orange County, San Diego and Santa Barbara. Nominations are being accepted at CoxConservesHeroes.com through 5 p.m. on April 27 for volunteers who are creating, preserving or enhancing outdoor spaces.
Judging panels, comprised of local civic and environmental leaders, will select one finalist from each area who will then compete to be named California’s 2015 Cox Conserves Hero. The winner, chosen through an online public vote, will receive $10,000 to donate to his or her selected environmental nonprofit beneficiary. The two finalists each will receive $5,000 for their nonprofits of choice.
