2002 - Government Agency Award - Education & Promotion - Oklahoma DEQ

Although the stated mission of the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality says nothing about supporting and promoting education, its dedicated workers frequently go beyond the proverbial extra mile for schools and groups seeking information on various environmental concerns.

In the past year, DEQ’s efforts ranged from programs and contests for students in grades K through 12, to producing posters and a planning guide to support community celebrations of “America Recycles Day.” Throughout the state, Oklahomans used the department’s “Use Less Stuff” waste reduction campaign and learned from the many presentations and exhibits provided by DEQ for special events.

Even more impressive is the behind the scenes support, wisdom and manpower DEQ employees donate to organizations such as Keep Oklahoma Beautiful and others. For soaring beyond its mission to administer environmental laws, THE OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY AND ITS EMPLOYEES ARE GOOD NEWS FOR EXPANDING ENVIRONMENTAL KNOWLEDGE IN OKLAHOMA!
