How are the Heroes Chosen?
The Heroes Judging Circle, a panel of civic leaders within Seattle'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 selected as Western Washington’s Cox Conserves Hero.
What does the Hero Receive?
A total of $20,000 will be donated to local environmental nonprofits in the Seattle area. The Cox Conserves Hero will receive $10,000, and each of the two finalists will receive $5,000 to donate to their nonprofits of choice. The organization must be a registered 501(c)(3) and proof of registration status is required.
