Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative Wins Award !!
The Lake Superior Binational Forum, meeting in Superior, Wis., on Sunday, July 17, recognized the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) with an honorable mention for environmental stewardship in the youth division. Michigan Tech is a partner in LSSI.

"We are honored and encouraged by this award, which bolsters our belief that educating the youth of our area about issues related to the Lake Superior watershed is a necessary responsibility of us all," said Mike Benda, a member of the LSSI Advisory Council and the K-12 assistant principal for Adams Township Schools. "LSSI promotes direct experience in the natural environment in an effort to establish a sense of place, enhance environmental appreciation and build a foundation for environmental stewardship for both youth and adults."
