Receive a Toyota scholarship for certification course admission and travel costs—apply by October 1
The Kentucky Environmental Education Council is excited to announce that it is the recipient of a grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky! The grant will allow KEEC to offer scholarships for the 2014-15 Professional Environmental Educator Certification course. The scholarships will cover the course admission fee and a significant amount of travel costs. The goal of the scholarships is to certify educators who will reach a diverse audience that is underserved by current environmental education efforts.
The 2014-15 Professional Environmental Educator Certification course is for anyone interested in educating others about the environment, especially those who would like to connect their work to the K-12 classroom. It will be held in four workshops across the state from November 2014 through March 2015.
To apply for the course, submit the course application and scholarship application (both available on the Application page
) by October 1.

See the initial results from the 2014 Survey of Kentuckians’ Environmental Knowledge, Attitudes & Behaviors
The Kentucky Environmental Education Council, along with Issues & Answers Network, Inc., has completed the fourth Survey of Kentuckians' Environmental Knowledge, Attitudes & Behaviors. The survey is a snapshot of whether Kentuckians can answer some basic questions about topics such as air, land and water quality. It also gauges Kentuckians’ attitudes toward certain environmental issues, such as how well we are protecting our natural resources. Finally, it asks Kentuckians to identify whether or not they engage in behaviors that might improve their environment.
