SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – CBS News 8 is celebrating Eco Ambassador contestants.

Tuesday morning (June 10), CBS News 8's Natasha Stenbock met the finalists at a kickoff breakfast. There are eight finalists - all nonprofits - that help improve and conserve the environment in their own unique way.

The prize money is sponsored by SDG&E.

"Us, along with CBS 8 and the San Diego River Park Foundation… it drives us a little bonkers that not enough people of San Diego really know what they do, because these are excellent organizations. So the Eco Ambassadors campaign welcomes people to go online, vote for the favorite of eight that we've chosen, then the one that gets the most votes gets $25,000," Pedro Villegas of SDG&E said.

This week, CBS News 8 will be airing videos, introducing the finalists every morning at 6:00.

You can vote for your favorite Eco Ambassador starting Friday, June 13, 2014.
