Individuals, institutions, and organizations whose project or initiative advances holistic, watershed-based approaches to water quality and quantity challenges may apply. Initiatives may be in education, public awareness, research, technology, water resource management, or policy development as long as they address issues surrounding water as a finite, reusable and sustainable resource.
Three winners will be celebrated in a special ceremony held on Earth Day April 22, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
