The New York State Outdoor Writers’ Association announces that nominations are now open for the 2019 Pass It On Award. Initiated by Bass Pro Shops, this annual award honors the person who has done the most to “pass on” our outdoor heritage. This award is given to Active Members of NYSOWA. This writer/media member is honored with a plaque at the Annual Conference and his or her name is recorded in the Annual Directory along with previous winners.
Both Bass Pro Shops and NYSOWA have recognized the fact that it is vital to pass on our outdoor heritage, including the understanding of the role of conservation and an interest in our outdoor sports. This can be done in a number of ways such as creating awareness through writing, helping organizations that promote these activities, or directly being involved in mentoring and educating.
Nominees must be Active Members of NYSOWA. Any member of NYSOWA may nominate a person they consider deserving of this award by giving a written description of the activities or accomplishments that this person has done to pass on the heritage of outdoor sports and conservation.
Nominations should be sent to Leo Maloney, 321 Robertson Road, Sherrill, NY 13461 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for nominations is August 15, 2019
The winner will be honored at the NYSOWA Fall Conference in October.
