Submissions are now OPEN for our 2023 Chapter Project Fair as part of our Annual Meeting.
The Texas Master Naturalist Program holds this competition during our Annual Meeting each year to share and award the premier projects of the TMN Program. Our chapter members continually list this fair as a favorite way to learn about projects other chapters are doing and how they may be able to replicate such projects in their areas.

Criteria & Judging
Each Chapter will provide a short written paragraph describing the project by September 15, 2023 (see the form below). A pre-selected panel of judges will join the live 20 minute presentation of the Project Fair during our October #TMNTuesday Speaker Session on October 3rd, 2023 using the judging criteria below. Keep in mind that the judges will come from partnering organizations/agencies and may include TMN leaders and volunteers. Judging will also include open Q&A to be hosted during the last 5 minutes of the 20 minute presentation.
Awards will be in the form of monetary project grants based on place level and availability of funds to the winning chapters which are intended to further support the winning projects or new project implementations of the chapters’ choice.
