Each year our Partners submit nominations for organizations or individuals they feel should be recognized for their achievements related to aquatic conservation. Two awards are given each year, one is the field of Communication/Outreach, and the second in the field of Science/Management. 

The submission deadline for our 2020 call for award nominations has passed. We look forward to announcing our 2020 Tennessee River Celebration Award recipients this Fall.
