 “Honoring Extraordinary Achievements by Ordinary People”


Lake Superior is one of the world’s biggest and most unusual lakes and therefore deserves special attention and protection.

The six categories for nominations include:

Lake Superior Binational Forum

The Lake Superior Binational Program represents a partnership of federal, state, provincial, and First Nations/tribal governments working together with citizens to ensure the protection of the Lake Superior basin ecosystem. The Lake Superior Binational Forum is a citizen stakeholder group of Americans and Canadians who work together to provide input to governments about these efforts and to educate basin residents about ways to protect and restore the lake basin’s natural resources.


The Forum is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency/Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
