The Center for Great Lakes Culture, based at Michigan State University, 
is dedicated to understanding and interpreting the cultural history and 
expressions of the diverse peoples, traditions and customs of the Great 
Lakes region (including the Ohio River Valley area), and the region's 
interaction with the world.

Pursuant to its goals the Center has established the Center for Great 
Lakes Culture Annual Website Award for the best world wide website 
devoted to the history and culture of the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley 
region. In particular, the Center will seek outstanding Great Lakes 
cultural and historical content that embraces new media and is therefore 
noteworthy for cultural importance, exceptional quality, and effective 
design. Last year's winner was the Great Lakes Information Network 
<http://www.great-lakes.net/>, designed and managed by the Great Lakes 
Commission.

Criteria for this year's award:

scholars, researchers, students, or the interested public.
