-==== WSGS ==== +
- +
-The Outstanding Volunteer Awards Program provides recognition to those individuals who have +
-been identified by their local genealogical organization to be honored for exceptional efforts. +
-The Washington State Genealogical Society (WSGS) started this program, not as a competition +
-between organizations, but as a means for societies or groups to give widespread recognition to +
-their best volunteers. WSGS produces award certificates using brief narratives of +
-accomplishments and digital photographs. The awards are announced at the WSGS annual +
-meeting and conference, and the certificates are given to those honored volunteers who are +
-present. Remaining award certificates are sent to the originating society for presentation. The +
-narrative is also abstracted into the WSGS Newsletter and onto the WSGS website to show +
-others around the state what good works volunteers do. +
- +
- +
-Generally, awards are given in two general categories: (1) for exceptional and consistent +
-support of the goals and operation of their home society, and (2) for outstanding efforts in the +
-identification, preservation, dissemination or publication of information of genealogical +
-importance and value to researchers interested in the families of Washington State. +
- +
