The Tennessee Clean Water Network sponsors an annual essay contest with prizes for essays about Tennessee water. The prizes are awarded in honor of the late Wilma Dykeman, the 2007 recipient of the Bill Russell River Hero Award. Wilma Dykeman’s legacy includes being the writer of 16 books, including The French Broad, being named Tennessee Conservation Writer of the Year, holding the honorary title of Tennessee State Historian, and leaving a love of nature and environmental stewardship and education for future generations.
