At Voluntern 2016, we introduced the first annual live blue Service Corps Awards. These three awards are meant to recognize individuals that have dedicated their time and energy to our episodic program by regularly attending cleanups, citizen science projects, habitat restoration projects, and similar efforts all around the Greater Boston Area.
The three awards are:
"Watershed Award" given to a volutneer that has volunteered at projects addressing a wide variety of issues across the Greater Boston Area, including projects never-before-seen on our calendar! This is given to an individual that simply aims to be invovled in everything.
"LBSC Skills Award" given to a volunteer that puts in countless hours into multiple committed positions, such as the Edge of the Sea touch tank educator and Turtle Emergency Response Volunteer positions.
"Service Leader of the Year" is given to one of our many volunteer Service Leaders that goes above and beyond the call of duty to plan and lead projects for the Service Corps.
At Voluntern 2019, the winners were:
Watershed Award: Caryl Johnson.
LBSC Skills Award: Karina Zawilinski.
Service Leader of the Year: Emily Mevers.
