I’m excited to announce the winners of the 2015 Environmental Initiative Awards. For those of you who attended the event, thank you for spending the evening with us to celebrate. We lucked out again with spectacular weather and even better company. On behalf of Environmental Initiative I’d like to extend a special thanks to Tom Weber from MPR News for serving as the evening’s emcee.

And, be sure to check out some of the fantastic photos, tweets, and posts that were shared here. (Great work with the table selfies, everybody!)

Congratulations to this year’s group of winning projects, and to the finalists, whose work is truly inspiring and we’re honored to share:
