The annual green awards dinner, hosted by Green Source DFW and its parent nonprofit, the Memnosyne Institute, will be held Nov. 15, 2018 at the Dallas Arboretum.

Last month, the top three nominees in each category were chosen by Green Source DFW readers during a public voting period. Winners were then selected from among the finalists by a panel of judges from the North Texas green community.
