Montana Neighbor Awards wants to celebrate good neighbors and is soliciting nominations for its annual awards. Nominations are due June 24.

Montana Neighbor Awards is a working group made up of conservation organizations from around the state including Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks, Montana Association of Land Trusts, Montana Farm Bureau, Artemis Common Ground, The Nature Conservancy of Montana and Montana Council of Trout Unlimited.

The awards recognize landowners who go the extra mile through collaborative efforts to enhance the Montana sense of community. Awards are based on four criteria: cooperation, land stewardship/conservation ethic, neighborly land access and community leadership.

Every year, the group solicits nominations of landowners from across Montana. An awards committee, along with the governor’s office, reviews the nominations and selects the award-winners. Winners receive specially printed and framed Montana Neighbor Award certificates signed by the members of the awards committee and by Montana Gov. Steve Bullock.

Nominations can be sent by email to briankahnacg@gmail.com or GLemon@mt.gov, or by regular mail to Montana Neighbor Awards, c/o Brian Kahn, PO Box 748, Helena, MT 59624.
