WWOA’s Awards Committee encourages members to nominate fellow members for WWOA’s Distinguished Service, Special Recognition and Next Generations awards. Nominations are due to the WWOA office by June 30 of each year.
Distinguished Service awards are presented to WWOA members for outstanding dedication and achievement in furthering the goals and principles of WWOA. Nominations should include years of WWOA service, notable accomplishments serving WWOA and its chapters, etc.
Special Recognition awards are presented to an individual for special activities or accomplishments that have a statewide impact on WWOA or the private forestry community in Wisconsin that may be narrow in focus.
Next Generation awards are dual awards presented to an educator and WWOA member who work together in a continuous effort to inform the next generation about the value of Wisconsin’s private woodlands and sustainable forest management. Educators eligible for the award include teachers or youth group leaders working with children or young adults ranging from grade school through technical, college or university students.
The Awards Committee knows that there are many potential award winners out there – we just need your help by nominating them! Complete the Nomination Form to submit your nomination. Contact the WWOA office with any questions at 715-346-4798.
