Fifty people changing the world that the world needs to know about

We encourage wide-ranging and expansive nominations that could range from “boots in the mud” exploration to the communication of science and exploration through various mediums. We’re not looking for household names, we’re looking for individuals who deserve recognition and a spotlight for their efforts and contributions, including those whose achievements might have been overlooked or under-appreciated in the past. In other words – 50 people changing the world, that the world needs to know about.

Applications for the Class of 2025 are due Monday, September 30, 2024. While the nomination process is simple, your nominee will be judged only on what materials you write or provide. Please make every effort to best demonstrate your nominee’s qualifications. We encourage you to include a video link of your nominee discussing their work, if available. We’ve made it easier to highlight your nominee by allowing you to share links and documents in your application.
