Honoring Michigan residents, past or present, who have made significant contributions to the state or nation, the Michigan Walk of Fame is downtown Lansing's newest attraction. Made up of 18" x 30" bronze plaques embedded in the sidewalk, each plaque displays information on the inductee's life and contribution. Plaques will be available for public viewing by Michigan Week in May 2006. 

Located in the heart of Lansing's commercial district the Michigan Walk of Fame is within walking distance of the Michigan State Capitol, the Michigan Library and Historical Center and a number of other museums and attractions. The Michigan Walk of Fame is the first Walk of Fame in the nation to honor the contributions of its residents on a statewide basis. Visitors are welcome to view the plaques at their leisure year-round. 

A selection committee, coordinated by the Michigan Historical Museum, reviews nominations separated into six categories:

The committee bases its decision on a series of criteria to ensure fairness. The nomination process is open to all interested people and/or organizations and Michigan residents are strongly encouraged to make a nomination.

The Michigan Walk of Fame was conceived by the Lansing Principal Shopping District to celebrate the accomplishments of great Michiganians; promote Lansing as Michigan's capital city; and create a permanent tourist attraction in downtown Lansing, which is currently undergoing an economic revival.

The Michigan Walk of Fame is a strategic partnership between the Lansing Principal Shopping District/Downtown Lansing, Inc., Michigan Historical Museum and the City of Lansing
