Nominations Now Open for the Betty Blashill Prize
Betty Blashill is truly an example of someone who lived out her beliefs in her day to day life. She was a passionate advocate for a better environment. However, she preferred to protect nature in her own quiet, modest and steady way, far from the limelight, and never seeking recognition. She was not in the foreground of environmental battles; she was not in the news; Betty did not feel the need for public validation of her environmental contribution. Having the opportunity to espouse her philosophy and dedicate her life and work to making a difference was reward enough. Betty lived according to her favorite motto that originated from Mahatma Gandhi: “Live simply so that others may simply live”.
We are pleased to invite nominations for the Betty Blashill Environmental Prize. While Betty and her positive, passionate, and tireless environmental work are missed sorely since her death in 2006, we know others are taking up the torch to work hard towards improving Hamilton. We hope to encourage others who work behind the scenes like Betty. The cash prize that accompanies this award may be used to advance the recipient’s environmental efforts and knowledge or his/her efforts to minimize his/her ecological footprint. We wish to recognize one of those good people each year for as long as the funds will allow.
