I have greatly enjoyed working with the Newton Marasco Foundation. Their ideas to protect the environment are innovative and purposeful. They walk their talk by providing a variety of opportunities for our younger citizens to gain more knowledge and/or get involved through projects that focus on the environment. I am specifically involved in the children's literature project, "The Green Earth Book Award" as a reviewer on two selection committees. The award categories have advanced from 1 in 2005 to 4 awards in 2011. This is a great way to get children, their teachers and families aware of the issues involving our planet.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the success of the Green Earth Book Award. Hopefully the award will generate new books and authors/illustrators who promote environmental stewardship for children. The books give our future generation ideas and power to improve/protect our environment.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to get more national recognition for the Green Earth Book Awards. During Earth Week, this award should be featured on all of the national networks (The Today Show, Good Morning America, Ellen, Morning Joe, etc.) as the first and only children's book award that not only rewards children's literature about the environment but also emphasizes stewardship, empowering children in ways they can help the earth.

Definitely

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes. It has enhanced my passion for finding ways to do my part in protecting my planet.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Each of us needs to do a little bit to help the environment. Working with NMF has made me more knowledgeable and wiser in ways to do my part. It also has empowered me to share what I learn with my college students at Salisbury University and also with the schools with whom I work.

I have been involved with the Newton Marasco Foundation (NMF) for several years, and have tremendously enjoyed my role formerly as a corporate patron and now as a volunteer. For the past three years, I also have had the distinct honor and pleasure of serving as a review panelist for the Foundation’s illustrious Green Earth Book Award (Picture Book Category). This annual contest was established “to promote books that inspire children to grow a deeper appreciation, respect, and responsibility for their natural environment.” Each year authors and their illustrators are awarded in four categories: Picture Book, Children’s Fiction, Young Adult Fiction, and Nonfiction. I can say without a doubt that this annual contest, coupled with the Foundation’s partnership with the annual Salisbury University Children and Young Adult Literature Festival, has equally inspired me and my fellow panelists to make a stronger and lasting commitment to being responsible environmental stewards. Reading and judging each year’s books about our environment and natural world, and then participating in the Foundation and University’s spring festival and meeting and hearing from the diversity of authors is an event unmatched in the environmental nonprofit community. I commend the Foundation for its ground-breaking work promoting and inspiring literature read by our children and young adults.
