Green Star® Community Awards

Four Green Star® communities were recognized at this year’s Alaska Forum Awards Ceremony luncheon. This was the first year of the Green Star® Community program and we had communities from all corners the state participate in the program. The Green Star® Community program supports rural communities that wish to practice waste reduction, energy conservation, better hazardous waste management, sustainable energy reliance, and pollution prevention through education, technical assistance, and the "green" community certification program.

A big thank you to all of this year's Green Star® Community awardees. We appreciate the dedication and hard work and look forward to many community-wide improvements in the future.
