Each year, SOS gives out 3 categories of awards at it’s Annual General Meeting. This year the meeting will be held in the 1000 Islands area on Saturday April 26th.
Volunteer of the Year Award
• The volunteer of the year award is intended to highlight individuals in the organization who have gone above and beyond with their dedication to marine heritage as recognized by their peers.
• Nominations should consist of the member name and a brief synopsis of the reason for nomination.
• The board will choose which nominations are to be awarded at the monthly meeting prior to the AGM.
SOS Marine Heritage Award
There are many individuals involved with marine heritage but it was recognized that there were a select few who were dedicated to the point that some special recognition was in order. To that end, SOS has an award which is presented yearly to an individual who dedicated a special effort to marine heritage conservation. The master copy with each awarded person’s name engraved on it is on display in the SOS Head Office or a designated location, and a personalized Plaque is given to each recipient.
The SOS Directors’ Achievement Award
From time to time, the Board recognizes members for their outstanding contributions and commitment to the preservation of Ontario’s marine heritage by awarding them the Save Ontario Shipwrecks Directors’ Award.
Please poll your chapter and submit your nominations before or at the OAS meeting in Feb.
