Cooperative Extension Educator Named Environmental Educator for 2008

March 26, 2008

The New Hampshire Environmental Educators have recognized Julia Steed Mawson as the 2008 NH Environmental Educator of the Year in the non-formal category. The award is sponsored by the Educator group and Public Service of New Hampshire.

In recognizing Mawson, a UNH Cooperative Extension 4-H youth development educator in Hillsborough County, it was noted that she has "outstanding skills in planning and executing programs, coupled with patience and perseverance. Her determination bursts open doors to amazing possibilities."

Mawson’s most recent work coordinating the NH Common Ground Garden Program also illustrates her passion for inclusiveness and building partnerships. She has brought together at-risk youth and their families, nursing home residents, volunteer docents, and many other partners, it was noted.

New Hampshire Environmental Educators seek nominations for three annual awards recognizing New Hampshire's outstanding environmental educators. The awards are open to all full-time New Hampshire public and private school teachers and nonformal educators working in New Hampshire. Shown in the above photo with Julia, seated, is Ruth Smith, Awards Committee chair of the NH Environmental Educator group.
