FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OHIO LAKE ERIE COMMISSION SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR 2003 OHIO LAKE ERIE 
AWARDS

Deadline for submitting nomination forms is August 8

Ohio citizens and organizations that have worked to enhance Lake Erie as 
the state's premiere natural resource are eligible to receive the 2003 Ohio 
Lake Erie Awards, according to the Ohio Lake Erie Commission.
Each year, the commission has sought to honor one individual and one 
organization that have shown superior dedication to protecting and 
restoring Lake Erie and its watershed. The annual Ohio Lake Erie Awards - 
depicting a likeness of the historic Marblehead Lighthouse - recognize that 
dedication in a tangible way.
Eight individuals and eight organizations have been recognized for their 
stewardship of Lake Erie since the commission established the Lake Erie 
Awards program in 1995. Nominating a person or organization for this award 
is one way of showing special appreciation for those who work to improve  
 Lake Erie and support the goals of the Lake Erie Protection Fund.
Nomination forms for this year's awards are available by calling 
419-245-2514 or from the commission's web site at www.epa.state.oh.us/oleo 
.  All nomination forms must be completed and returned by 5 p.m. on Friday, 
August 8, in order to be eligible for consideration. Winners will be 
announced during the 2003 Coastweeks observance, August 23 to September 21.
The Ohio Lake Erie Commission was created to preserve Lake Erie's natural 
resources, enhance its water quality and promote economic development in 
the region. The director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency serves 
as the commission's chairman and the director of the Ohio Department of 
Natural Resources serves as secretary. Additional members include the 
directors of the departments of transportation, development, health and 
agriculture.
