The Illinois Steward magazine has won numerous awards from Agricultural Communicators in Education (ACE), an international organization that hosts competitions for publications.
Recognition of quality goes beyond awards. The Illinois Steward has been sought out by agencies and organizations to produce high-quality articles that articulate their research, projects and programs. The Illinois Steward produced an article and reprints for the Office of the Governor for the State of Illinois to honor the conservation initiatives and accomplishments of then Governor Jim Edgar. Quantity reprints have been used by the Illinois Natural History Survey, Illinois Waste Management and Research Center, U of I Arboretum, U of I Office of Continuing Education's Robert Allerton Park and Conference Center, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, Illinois Grasslands Conservation Initiative Committee, The Nature Conservancy, and The Wetlands Initiative for their educational and promotional efforts.
