On Friday, April 10th, Enrichmond announced the winners in each category of the Trailblazer Awards. Each will receive a monetary prize (a scholarship, in the student’s case) and the thanks of the entire city (get on that, citizens) for doing so much to help RVA’s environment.

Enrichmond’s very first Trailblazer Awards are this much closer to being put into the hands of real people and organizations!
We are thrilled to announce the nominees for Enrichmond’s inaugural Trailblazers Awards. The Trailblazer Awards will be an annual celebration honoring citizens and organizations that are making significant contributions to the environmental well-being of the City of Richmond.
Over the last quarter century, we have seen amazing efforts that preserved our parks, inspired the youth of Richmond to get outdoors, cleaned up the James River, expanded our City’s tree canopy, restored stream banks, and highlighted our beautiful natural surroundings through environmentally conscious recreational activities. It’s time we honor and celebrate those individuals and organizations leading the environmental and sustainable movement in Richmond.
