In the month of August, Cox Enterprises and its family of businesses will issue a call for nominations and the public will nominate volunteers using a brief online form. Next, Trust for Public Land will assemble a panel of civic and environmental leaders to select one winner from the pool of nominations for each region to go on to compete for the national Cox Conserves Hero title. Additionally, judges will select a second and third place winner from each region.
Each regional winner will be profiled on the Cox Conserves Heroes website with a video and will have the opportunity to share their unique story. The public will view the videos and then vote for the nominee they feel is most deserving of the $50,000 grand prize. Other prizes will be awarded, please visit the FAQ page for more details.
