The Wisconsin Lakes Partnership presents the annual Wisconsin Lake Stewardship Awards to recognize the extraordinary volunteer and professional efforts of individuals and groups to protect and improve our lakes. People are nominated for Stewardship Awards by their peers. It's a meaningful way to say thank you to the people in your community who work so hard to care for our lakes.
Winners of these awards join a select group of women, men, students, and organizations whose unmatched dedication, vision, and commitment ensure that Wisconsin's legacy of lakes will be protected for generations to come. The Stewardship Awards represent our best collective effort to honor and celebrate all the incredible work that goes into securing a bright future for Wisconsin's lakes.
