Each year, at NHA's Waterpower Week in Washington, we honor the hydropower industry's most deserving individuals and organizations. Recognizing creativity and innovation, we present the Outstanding Stewards of America’s Waters (OSAW) Award to hydropower and marine energy projects that exhibit exemplary operational, educational, historical, recreational, or environmental enhancement and stewardship. We also bestow NHA's most prestigious individual award, the Dr. Kenneth Henwood Award, to recognize life-time achievement, dedication and integrity to the hydropower industry. 

Do you have a project that you think is worthy of OSAW recognition?

Do you know someone that should be recognized for a lifetime of service to the industry?  

If your answer is yes to either of these questions, please access our awards application portal below to submit your OSAW project or nominate someone for the Henwood Award.
