"We are the melting pot of the Great Basin, a place where practicality, spirituality and creativity all meet and mingle to create a unique essence," states Alice Toler in the introduction. "Out-of-towners, expecting a monoculture, are constantly surprised by the vibrancy they find here." The awardees are some of those whose efforts through the years have cultivated this vibrancy.

Selections were made from a list of almost 200 nominees, said editor & publisher Greta Belanger deJong in the introduction.

The 100 "catalysts" will be honored at a gathering on January 16 at the Leonardo.
