Green Building Council-Central Coast Accepting Applications for Green Awards

The Central California Coast Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC-C4) has announced it is now accepting applications for its 2013 Green Awards.

The awards recognize outstanding green achievements along the California Central Coast as part of USGBC-C4’s ongoing efforts to encourage sustainable living. The awards highlight innovative design, construction, products, practices, businesses, schools, governments and educational programs in the community.

Categories include Green New Construction, Green Home, Green Landscape, Green Operations, Green Rehab/Renovation and Green Innovation.

“By honoring local leaders in sustainability we hope to raise awareness and encourage others to adopt similar programs and projects that provide immense benefits to our community” said Ashley Watkins, co-chair of the Green Awards.

Award entries must be received by Oct. 11. Applicants can apply online by clicking here. Winners are determined by a judging committee made up of local experts in sustainability and green building. Green Awards recipients will be honored at the USGBC-C4 annual gala on Friday, Dec. 6.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
