Applications Open for PEYA!

Are you and your Scouts involved in the efforts to protect the environment?

Each year, the Environmental Protection Agency offers an opportunity of recognition with the President's Environmental Youth Award, a regional award for youth who have completed projects to help improve the quality of the planet.

Winning projects in the past have covered a wide range of subject areas including: restoring native habitats; recycling in schools and communities; construction of nature preserves; tree planting; installing renewable energy projects; creating videos, skits, and newsletters that focused on environmental issues; and participating in many other creative sustainability efforts.

The eligibility requirements are as follows:

  • The project must be completed while the applicant(s) is in kindergarten through 12th grade.
  • Applicant(s) must be a citizen of the United States or its territories or has been lawfully admitted for permanent residency.
  • The project must be sponsored by at least one adult over the age of 21.
  • Projects started on or after January 1, 2018 are eligible for consideration. As long as there was activity on the project during 2018, a project initiated prior to that date is eligible for consideration.
  • Projects must include an environmental stewardship component.

The deadline for applications is February 1st, 2019.
