HARRISBURG, Pa. — Gov. Tom Corbett has announced that 19 organizations involved in 16 environmental projects from across the state will receive the 2013 Environmental Excellence Award.

The winners were selected by the Department of Environmental Protection and the nonprofit organization Pennsylvania Environmental Council.
The council will hold a dinner to honor the award winners April 17 at the Hilton in downtown Harrisburg. Richard Allan, secretary of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, will be the keynote speaker.
