 EPA INVITES PARTICIPATION IN POLLUTION PREVENTION AWARDS PROGRAM
 PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) William K. Reilly announced today the opportunity to participate in the second annual Administrator's Awards Program, which was created to recognize excellence in efforts to clean up the environment.
 This second year, the program focuses on achievements made in pollution prevention. Award-winning projects will serve as national models of success in reducing or eliminating pollution at the source.
 Awards will be presented in 10 categories representing all sectors of society, including individual citizens, educational institutions, industry, local government and others. Projects will be judged on criteria such as: overall improvements to the quality of air, land, or water, use of innovative techniques, and cost-effectiveness.
 To enter, candidates must submit applications to the EPA through one of the Regional Offices. Region III includes Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. The EPA, Region III Office is located at 841 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, Pa., 19107. Applications must be postmarked by Feb. 13, 1992, and must include a summary of the project, specifically addressing each of the selection criteria. Details of the application procedure are available by calling the EPA, Region III Office at 215-597-1168, or 215-597-4081.
 In judging the applications, each EPA Region will choose up to six candidates from every category. The field of regional nominations will then be evaluated by a panel of non-EPA experts to determine the finalists. From the select group, Reilly will choose the national winners, which will be announced during Earth Day celebrations this spring.
 Last year, the Administrator's Awards Program spotlighted achievements made in recycling. EPA, Region III nominated 26 regional finalists, one of which went on to become the national winner in the individual citizens category.
