Cox Communications, in partnership with The Trust for Public Land (TPL), has launched Arizona's first Cox Conserves Heroes awards program.

Two individuals will be recognized as Arizona's Cox Conserves Heroes, and a total of $14,000 will be donated to local environmental nonprofits.

The Cox Conserves Heroes program asks local residents to nominate volunteers in their community who help create, preserve or enhance outdoor places for everyone to enjoy.

Eligible nominees cannot receive financial compensation for their conservation work.

Nominations are being accepted through Nov. 21 at Finalists will be selected by a judging panel comprised of local civic and environmental leaders.

Arizona's Cox Conserves Heroes will be chosen through online voting and will each be awarded $5,000 to donate to their environmental nonprofit of choice.

Finalists' nonprofits of choice will receive $1,000.
