2013 High-School Student Environmental Leadership Awards Applications

Applications for The Rockfall Foundation’s annual awards program highlighting youth achievement are now available online at our website.

The Virginia R. Rollefson Youth Environmental Leadership Awards, named for former foundation Executive Director Virginia R. “Ginny” Rollefson, recognize Middlesex County high school students who are presently involved with significant programs and projects in areas of natural resource preservation, conservation, restoration or development.

The award includes a cash gift for those individuals and/or groups honored, with up to two awards given each year. The application process is now open to students in grades 9-12 beginning on April 22, Earth Day, and will close June 3.

The winners will be selected and announced in October (in time for early-decision college applications), and the public presentation will be part of Rockfall’s Annual Meeting and Awards ceremony in November 14. A link to the application materials can be found on Rockfall’s website homepage. Questions? Call the office at (860) 347-0340.
