Under the Waste Reduction Policy Act of 1991, the TCEQ initiated the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards in 1993. Presented every spring, the awards are given in up to 9 diverse categories across the public and private sectors. By honoring these winners, the TCEQ hopes to encourage other citizens to initiate like-minded projects and reinforce a spirit of environmental stewardship.
All are invited to attend the Texas Environmental Excellence Awards Banquet! The awards ceremony is typically held on the final evening of the TCEQ's Environmental Trade Fair and Conference. Details for registration will be found on the TCEQ Environmental Trade Fair & Conference website (Note: you will be redirected off this site).

The Blue Ribbon Committee is involved each year by making recommendations to the TCEQ commissioners and the Governor. For the most current information see the TCEQ Blue Ribbon Committee website (Note: you will be redirected off this site).
