The Exemplar Award is awarded annually by the District to High Desert entities that demonstrate an exceptional commitment to clean air through the development of voluntary activities that reduce or prevent air pollution emissions. 

Each year, the MDAQMD seeks nominations for its annual air quality achievement award. The Exemplar recognizes exceptional businesses, agencies, organizations, educational institutions and individuals ("Nominee") who have made outstanding contributions to the prevention and/or control of air pollution within High Desert communities.  

Eligible candidates include local businesses, industries, schools, organizations and individuals which have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to clean air through the development of voluntary air pollution reduction and/or prevention programs.  Nominated entities must be located within the regulatory air agency’s boundaries – which encompass the High Desert portion of San Bernardino County and Riverside County’s Palo Verde Valley. Nominated individuals must reside within the MDAQMD’s boundaries.  Candidates may be self-nominated or nominated by a second party.

The District is currently accepting nominations for its 2016 - 2017 Exemplar Award.

Nominations must be postmarked or received at MDAQMD offices by 5:00 P.M. on Thursday, August 31.  The Exemplar Award will be presented in association with National Pollution Prevention Week, September 18-24, 2017.
