Awards to Delaware students to recognize outstanding projects that have had a positive impact on the environment. Awards are intended to acknowledge students in grades 1 through 12 whose activities and initiatives have helped to promote the preservation and protection of Delaware's natural resources. Winners are chosen in three categories: elementary grades 1 through 4, middle school grades 5 through 8, and high school grades 9 through 12.

The Young Environmentalist program honors Delaware students whose actions have helped protect, restore or enhance Delaware’s natural resources through one or more of the following: demonstrating environmental stewardship, initiating an innovative project, increasing public awareness, or demonstrating environmental ethics.

Past honorees have included students who planned community cleanups and tree plantings, founded or led school environmental clubs or projects, and volunteered at parks and nature centers, as well as beekeepers, nature photographers, recycling advocates, and young lobbyists.
