About TEEA

The state's highest environmental honor since 1993.

The Texas Environmental Excellence Awards is an annual awards program that honors achievements in environmental preservation and protection. There are nine diverse award categories that provide citizens, communities, businesses, and organizations an opportunity to obtain the state’s highest environmental honor and be recognized for their environmental projects. Those categories are:

  • Agriculture
  • Civic/Community
  • Education
  • Individual
  • Innovative Operations/Management
  • Pollution Prevention
  • Technical/Technology
  • Water Conservation
  • Youth

Since 1993, we have honored over 250 successful environmental projects and efforts. By honoring these winners, the TCEQ hopes to encourage others to initiate like-minded projects and reinforce a spirit of environmental stewardship.
