Winners will be announced at the Green Source DFW Awards Nov. 12, 2020, along with other specialty awards. 

With the pandemic likely to still be affecting social gatherings, the venue of the awards has not been determined.

“This year's award ceremony will be held, but we don’t know which format they will take yet,” said Wendel Withrow, Green Source DFW director. “So get those nominations in because the environmental heroes are needed now more than ever.” 

Sponsor the Green Source DFW Sustainable Leadership Awards and show your support for local green leaders and innovators. It's also a great way to get your name in front of the North Texas green community. Here are the 2020 sponsorship levels.
