For Being OutsTanding In Stewardship
The Battle River Watershed Alliance recognizes local youth, individuals, and businesses/organizations for being OTIS: OutsTanding In Stewardship.
The OTIS Award is a way to recognize community members of the Battle River and Sounding Creek Watersheds who are OutsTanding In Stewardship. Stewardship can be defined as “the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving”. To the Battle River Watershed Alliance (BRWA), a steward is someone who takes action to make the watershed a better place to live for all life and for the life of future generations.

In the Youth category: Maven Boddy and the Golden Prairie 4H club of Forestburg for their riparian restoration project along the Battle River near Galahad.
In the Individual category: Mike Black for his dedication to the preservation of the Mount Butte Natural Area at Battle Lake.
