Nominate a Community Sentinel for FracTracker Alliance’s Annual Award

FracTracker Alliance created the Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship, now in its fourth year, to honor environmental heroes protecting their communities from the harms of the oil and gas industry – from fracking wells to pipelines to export terminals. And today, the nomination period has officially opened.

Nominate a Community Sentinel

Each Community Sentinel awardee will receive $1,000 and will be recognized at an evening reception in Pittsburgh, PA on November 26, 2018 hosted by FracTracker and some amazing sponsors and partners. The deadline to nominate a community sentinel for this prestigious award is September 14, 2018.

In the event an activist has passed away in the last year, we would still like to recognize them for their inspirational efforts within a Legacy of Heroes presentation during the award ceremony. The deadline to request we include an individual in the Legacy of Heroes presentation is October 12, 2018.
