Cox Enterprises and The Trust for Public Land announce that voting for the 2019 National Cox Conserves Hero is now open until Oct. 15, 2019. One national winner will be selected from nine local winners and will receive $50,000 to donate to their environmental nonprofit of choice, courtesy of the James M. Cox Foundation.

The Cox Conserves Heroes program is celebrating 11 years of recognizing community members who work tirelessly to create, preserve or enhance outdoor spaces. Local winners from Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Virginia and Washington received a $10,000 grant to their environmental nonprofit of choice, given by the James M. Cox Foundation, the Cox-affiliated foundation.
Judging panels in each market selected the local winners, who are now finalists for the national competition.
“The Cox Conserves Heroes program highlights some of the great work happening in communities around the country,” said Maury Wolfe, senior director Corporate Responsibility and Public Affairs, Cox Enterprises. “It’s our 11th year supporting this program and giving these volunteers the recognition they deserve. It continues to be Cox’s honor to play a role in helping make the world a better place for the next generation.”
In partnership with The Trust for Public Land, Cox Conserves Heroes is part of Cox Enterprises’ national Cox Conserves sustainability program. Through the Cox Conserves Heroes program, the James M. Cox Foundation has contributed nearly $1 million to environmental nonprofits and honored more than 200 volunteers across the country.
The winner of the 2019 National Cox Conserves Hero award will be announced in late October.
