The goal of the 1st annual Tennessee River Ripple Effect Awards presented by Yamaha RightWaters ™ is to recognize the many individuals, groups, companies and organizations that work hard to improve and protect the Tennessee River and its tributaries.
This work often goes unsung, and we want to help celebrate the good stewards of our ‘singing river!’ (If you’re not familiar with this reference, visit The Shoals, Alabama). It’s our hope that sharing these success stories will motivate more Tennessee River Valley community members to take action for the Tennessee River, creating a ripple effect through our river communities!
The Tennessee River Ripple Effect Awards will be presented at breakfast ceremonies in three states as we celebrate ‘Keep the Tennessee River Beautiful Month’ in October. The ceremonies will take place in coordination with river cleanups on the following dates:
Sunday, September 29 @ 9:30 a.m.
