SHE WAS the “lone voice” who brought the impact of climate change to the forefront more than a decade ago.

It is little wonder, then, that Professor Lynne Frostick has once again been called up to help to preside over the panel of judges for The Yorkshire Post Environment Awards. The Hull University academic scooped the Green Champion award in the first ever ceremony in 2009 recognising her work leading regional steering groups aimed at rising to the challenge of climate change.

This year she will be using her expertise to find the best of a new bunch of eco-warriors.

Entries for the Environment Awards opened last week and the race is on to find from businesses, community groups, individuals and schools at the forefront of Yorkshire’s green revolution.

Prof Frostick said: “I’m delighted to return to the judging panel. I really enjoyed looking at last year’s entries.”

There are 11 awards up for grabs – Innovation, Climate Change, Countryside, Best Environmental Start-up, Manufacturer and the Built Environment for projects over £1m, Green Champion for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution where they live, the Young People’s award and the Environmental Business of the Year, sponsored by Northern Gas Networks.
