Nominate a Wisconsin Academy Fellow

Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to Wisconsin? Do you have a friend or colleague who is highly esteemed for his or her judgment, perceptiveness, and breadth of knowledge? Does this person possess a keen understanding of how literature, art, and/or science contribute to the cultural life and health of our state? Is there an educator, mentor, civic or business leader in your community whose career is marked by a high order of discovery and technological accomplishment; creative achievement in the arts (e.g. literature, visual art, music); historical analysis; legal or judicial interpretation; philosophical thinking; or public service?
If so, you might know a future Wisconsin Academy Fellow.
