The contribution of volunteers to the welfare of local genealogical organizations is the crucial factor in keeping those organizations operating smoothly. In 2003 the Washington State Genealogical Society established a non-competitive program to give wider recognition to the outstanding people and teams your organization has selected to be honored, as well as the many other outstanding volunteers from around the state.
For a detailed explanation of the Volunteer Awards program, along with what and when your organization should submit to honor your volunteers.
