Congratulations to our 2020 Massachusetts Clean Community Award winners!

We presented our 2020 Clean Community Awards virtually via Zoom on December 3. While we would have preferred to celebrate in person, it was a pleasure to bring so many dedicated environmental and community service heroes together for one evening.

A special thanks to our special guest, former Governor Michael Dukakis, for his perspectives and service to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We also appreciated Senator Paul Feeney for joining us and sharing his inspirational thoughts!

The Massachusetts Clean Community Awards recognize volunteers, nonprofit leaders, government leaders, businesses, and municipal partners for exceptional environmental protection and community cleanup efforts. Nominations for the 2021 Massachusetts Clean Community Awards are now open. Submit a nomination today!
