AWARD HISTORY AND SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

The NYSSA Annual Awards Program was developed to recognize those individuals and organizations that go the extra mile, year in and year out, to promote and to make snowmobiling better and safer throughout New York State.  Awards are made in the following categories:
•    New York State Snowmobile Dealership of the Year
•    New York State Groomer Operator of the Year
•    New York State Snowmobile Family of the Year
•    The John Albert/Edward Dutcher Most Valuable Snowmobiler of the Year
•    Youth Snowmobiler of the Year.

The qualifications for these awards are based on the guidelines for the awards given out annually by the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA). Nominations are submitted throughout the season, with a cutoff of March 1 each year. Nomination packages are also forwarded on to ACSA for national level award consideration.

The remaining award category is the NYSSA President’s Award.  The criteria for this award is determined by the President of NYSSA, and is generally awarded to a person or persons that have greatly facilitated NYSSA Operations.
