£500, runners-up prizes, up for grabs in the Wandsworth Green Champions awards
Sponsor Thames Water has offered to fund the prizes for the awards, which recognise residents, schools and community groups that go the extra mile to recycle more and waste less.
Categories include recycling and waste minimisation champion, green project or group and green champion. Anyone who lives, attends school or runs a green group in the borough is eligible. You can enter yourself or nominate someone else.
Schools can enter the primary/junior school or secondary/sixth form college category. In both cases judges will be looking for what the school does to protect the environment and the quality of environmental education they provide to pupils.
Previous winners have included the founder of the Transition Town Tooting movement, a family that throws out less than one bag of rubbish a week, a cycling project, and schools that grow their own vegetables and work with students on environmental projects.
