How are the Heroes Chosen?
The Heroes Judging Circle, a panel of civic leaders within Boston's conservation field, selects three finalists. The finalists are profiled on the Cox Conserves Heroes website and in local media, during which, the public is asked to vote online for their favorite. At the conclusion of the voting period, the finalist with the most votes will be named Boston's 2016 Cox Conserves Hero.
What does the Hero Receive?
A total of $20,000 will be donated to local environmental nonprofits in Boston. $10,000 will be donated to Hero’s environmental nonprofit organization of choice. Each of the finalists will receive $5,000 to donate to their environmental nonprofits of choice. The organization must be a registered 501(c)(3) and proof of registration status is required.
