Bill Whitney is semifinalist for Volvo for life Awards

Exciting news at Prairie Plains:

We've just learned that Prairie Plains Executive Director Bill Whitney has become one of the top five semifinalists in Nebraska for the 5th Anniversary Volvo for life Awards, Volvo's national search for everyday heroes that gives out nearly $1 million in awards and funding each year. John Heaston of the Nature Conservancy nominated Bill for this program because of the extraordinary work Prairie Plains is doing to create opportunities for education, land stewardship and community development — and this year Volvo has selected Bill as one of the top five nominations from Nebraska — out of more than 16,000 nominations they have received over the past five years.

This year, YOU have a chance to vote in the awards — and your vote could help Bill become eligible to receive up to $50,000 in funding for Prairie Plains — a chance to attend the 5th Anniversary Awards Gala in New York City — and maybe even a Volvo for life!

Please log on to http://www.volvoforlifeawards.com to vote. You won't be asked to provide any personal information; all it takes to vote is to check a box and click a button. I hope you'll take the time to visit the site — and please pass the link along to anyone in your address book that you think would be interested. It's a great way to support the Institute and to share a little info about what we do with folks that may not know about Bill's work.

Thanks so much for your support!
