Meet One of Our Litter Prevention Judges

We want to take another opportunity to introduce you to another one of the judges for our 30 in 30 Green Grants Program. If you submitted an application for one or our grant awards this year, you know that all of the grant proposals are being read and evaluated by our panel of judges during the month of May. We’ll announce the grant winners one each day during the month of June, but we thought you might like to learn a little bit about the judges themselves. They are an impressive group, and we’re pleased that they share their expertise and time that it takes to read, evaluate, and score the Green Grants application forms. Especially this year, with our largest number of submissions ever!

Suzanne Taylor is one of four judges in the Litter Prevention category. She is the Financial Responsibility Programs Coordinator for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Land Protection and Revitalization, having worked at DEQ since 2005. In her current position, she implements statewide financial assurance programs for solid and hazardous waste facilities, among other responsibilities. Suzanne said her job puts her in contact with people from across the state and in a variety of businesses and local governments, and she feels honored to work with people who promote the health and well-being of the citizens of the Commonwealth.
Suzanne volunteers as a judge for the Green Grants program because she’s concerned with the protection of the environment, and enjoys learning about programs that are making a difference in reducing litter and cigarette waste across Virginia.
