OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha organization dedicated to increasing public awareness of environmental issues has announced new categories for its Earth Day Omaha’s Friend of the Environment awards.

In addition to recognizing an individual and a nonprofit organization, three additional categories in the 2017 nominations will include awards for business, youth and lifetime achievement.

Earth Day Omaha Coalition board chairwoman Liz Davis says expanding the award categories was important to represent the wide range of people and organizations “who make the environment a priority every day.”

Nominations are open until April 7 and can be submitted at the Earth Day Omaha website at earthdayomaha.org. Winners will be announced at the Earth Day Omaha event on April 22.
