FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 27, 2003

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 
recognized at the September 4, 2003 quarterly meeting of the Lake Erie 
Commission. 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.
