Sustainable Saint Paul Awards

The Sustainable Saint Paul Awards recognize community members and organizations for making a commitment to creating a more sustainable Saint Paul. By sponsoring these awards, the City of Saint Paul hopes to encourage all residents, businesses, community groups and non-profits in Saint Paul to implement similar projects.  

Thank you to everyone who applied for a 2017 Sustainable Saint Paul award! 

Winners will be notified at the end of March, and will asked to be present or send a representative to receive the award at the award ceremony in council chambers on April 19, 2017. 

Award Winner Selection Process

Award winners will be selected by a subgroup of the City’s Sustainable Saint Paul Team, an interdepartmental team of City staff who work on supporting the urban environment. Winners will be contacted late March 2017, and will be invited to participate in an awards ceremony with Mayor Chris Coleman and the Saint Paul City Council on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 3:30 pm.
