Live Green Toronto Awards now open for public voting
Public voting begins today to determine the winners of the City of Toronto's 2013 Live Green Toronto Awards. The awards recognize and celebrate the residents, groups and businesses that contribute to the greening of Toronto.

“It's a tribute to our great city that so many individuals, community groups and businesses are working to keep Toronto clean, green and healthy," said Councillor Norm Kelly (Ward 40 Scarborough-Agincourt), Chair of the City's Parks and Environment Committee. "I encourage everyone to watch the videos and vote for their favourites."

Fifteen finalists - three in each award category - were selected by a panel of independent judges. The winners will now be determined by popular vote. Award categories include youth, individual, group, small business and corporation.

The winner in each award category will receive $2,500 courtesy of award sponsors, and a chance to tell their great, green story on CP24, Exclusive Television Partner of Live Green Toronto. Other sponsors include Loblaw Companies Limited, the Toronto Star, Metro News, Toronto Hydro and the City's Economic Development and Culture division.
