New categories available this year

Each year, Lakewood’s Sustainability Awards recognize the sustainability champions that are making a difference in the community. From environmental stewardship to educating peers, from implementing a sustainable business practice to introducing sustainability concepts in schools, the accomplishments of previous winners are as diverse as they are powerful. 

Now is the time to nominate your Lakewood sustainability hero. Two new categories have been added to the awards for 2021: Legacy and Business Innovation. The new categories will amplify the awards’ mission to recognize leadership in sustainability across Lakewood, and they will join the existing categories of Community, Defender of the Planet and Eco-Employee. The winners will be recognized by City Council and the community in May.

Watch this video to hear from previous winners and understand what the awards mean to the city. Visit for a full description of the categories, eligibility and evaluation criteria as well as to submit a nomination by the March 15 deadline. For questions, contact the program is 303-987-7515 or
