government, business and nonprofit leaders, citizen activists, and other individuals who have worked

from your board, staff, membership or anyone you think has contributed to improving southwestern

Pennsylvania’s environment over the last forty years.

Nominating someone is easy. Just send this form to GASP, or simply email a one page summary

of the individual’s contribution to improving southwestern Pennsylvania’s environment, along with

their name, address, phone and email, to Don’t forget to include the nominator
