The Cooperative Forest Fire Prevention Committee is pleased to announce the opening of the nominations period for 2023 Smokey Bear Awards.
In the world of wildfire prevention, there is no greater honor than to receive a Smokey Bear Award. These special awards are reserved for people or organizations that provide outstanding service with significant and sustained program impact in the wildfire prevention arena.
All nominations for the 2023 Smokey Bear Awards must adhere to this criteria and be submitted to this online form by December 15, 2022.
The earliest version of the Smokey Bear Awards began in the mid-1950s. Then and today, the awards program is led by the three partners behind the Smokey Bear wildfire prevention campaign—the National Association of State Foresters, the Ad Council, and the USDA Forest Service.
