I would like to know this too. I just found out my great grandmother's cousin was an author and considered a "Memorable Manitoban" by the Manitoba Historical Society.
If there is a badge or sticker or something, what are the requirements for adding it to the profile?
I feel like I remember something about some sort of notables project? Do we have to join that to submit a profile?
I guess I just have more questions than an answer.
Edit: I found out the guideline is they must have a wikipedia page, which seems to rule out my author. Good luck with yours.
