OHIO LAKE ERIE COMMISSION SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR 2004 LAKE ERIE AWARDS
Deadline for submitting nomination forms is August 6
Ohio individuals and organizations that have shown exceptional dedication 
to preserving Lake Erie as the state's premier natural resource are 
eligible to receive the 2004 Lake Erie Awards, according to the Ohio Lake 
Erie Commission.

Each year, the commission honors one person and one organization that have 
worked to protect and restore Lake Erie and its watershed. The annual Lake 
Erie Awards program recognizes that effort.

Nine individuals and nine 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 
shows 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 6, in order to be eligible for consideration. Winners will be 
announced during the 2004 Coastweeks observance, August 21 to September 19.

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is comprised of the directors of the Ohio 
departments of the environmental protection agency, natural resources, 
transportation, development, health and agriculture. It was established for 
the purpose of preserving Lake Erie's natural resources, protecting the 
quality of its waters and ecosystem, and promoting economic development of 
the region.

The commission oversees the Ohio Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF). During 
the last 12 years, the commission has raised $8 million through the sale of 
Lake Erie license plates. This money is used to fund LEPF grants that focus 
on improving the quality of Lake Erie and to furthering the goals laid out 
in the Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan.
