Congratulations to Charlie for being First Runner Up!

The votes are in! Charlie Harrelson is First Runner-up.

Cox Conserves Heroes announced the winner of the recent polling for our top regional environmental contestants. Thanks to all of you who voted for Charlie Harrelson, the Kemps Landing Magnet School student who designated Pleasure House Point as the beneficiary of his winnings. Chris Clifford, from Gloucester, won the top prize for his work with Park Partners on the Peninsula.

But considering that there were three candidates from Virginia Beach to split the vote, the fact that Charlie was first runner-up is a credit to all of you who voted for him. As Mr. Clifford noted in his acceptance speech, there were no losers in this competition, just a gathering of winners.

Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation Foundation will receive $1,250 on behalf of the PHP acquisition. Thanks, Charlie, and thanks to all of you who voted.


Cox will be airing a 30 minute show about all the finalists.  You can read about the winner and see a schedule of the show times at this link Cox Conserves Heroes Winner & Show Press Release
