eTown

eTown is an exciting weekly radio broadcast heard from coast to coast on NPR, public and commercial stations.

One of the show’s most popular segments is the E-Chievement Award. For two decades and counting, listeners from around the country have been submitting names of groups and individuals who are working hard to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond. Out of those community-sponsored submissions come the candidates for the E-Chievement Awards.

The work of the Grassroots Garbage Gang has been recognized three times (!) with an E-Chievement Award for the work we are doing to help keep the nation’s beaches clean! We received an award in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Since the caliber of other nominees is always very high, we are honored to have been chosen.
