Dear Clubs and Members:
We at NYSSA would like to give recognition to the hard working individuals who make up your club.Our way of doing this is by offering a variety of awards. There are many clubs throughout New York State and with their volunteerism and hard work, they make snowmobiling a safe and fun sport.
Applications for the awards may be printed from the links above.Applications are due by March 1. These awards will be presented at the NYSSA Awards Luncheon on Saturday, April 29 in Lake Placid.
The NYSSA Award Recipients are sent on to ACSA for consideration for their awards.Below are ideas to make the Awards Applications more competitive and meet ACSA standards.
Include bullet statements of accomplishments referenced back to the question on the form (show “supporting documentation” for the statements made.No supporting info means little in the ranking).
Letters of recommendation/commendationfrom community sources, whether state or local government, fire dept., rescue squad, business, sponsors, charities,and non-snowmobile sources (testimonials to achievements).
Copies of newspaper articles or other media, club newsletter articles,items that especially promote snowmobiling in your area.
Need to show cause and effect, like – “sponsored a charitable fundraiser and – raised X dollars”.
Lists of activities, whether snowmobile or non-snowmobile related, charities, donations, how do you “market” your club.
