North Carolina Coastal Federation seeks applicants for environmental award

The North Carolina Coastal Federation has announced the continuation of the Coastal Stewardship Award in 2021. The federation is offering three $1,000 awards coastwide. The winners will be announced on April 1, 2021.

The Coastal Stewardship Award was launched in 2019 and provided one award of $1,000 to a graduating high school senior with outstanding dedication to the coastal environment. It was expanded to three awards in 2020. The 2020 award recipients were Dylan Gray from Cape Hatteras Secondary School, Henry Ferrell from E.A. Laney High School, Ella Harlacher from Croatan High School.

“We are so glad we’re able to offer three awards again this year through support of local sponsors. We are continuously impressed by the students we work with, and are honored to invest in their future,” said Rachel Bisesi, coastal education coordinator for the federation.

This award is open to graduating high school seniors in North Carolina’s 20 coastal counties. The application deadline is February 13. For additional details and to view the online application, visit nccoast.org/coastalaward.

The federation is a member-supported nonprofit organization working to protect and restore North Carolina’s coastal habitats and water quality. Learn more at www.nccoast.org.
