Award to a New Hampshire individual who has given greatly of his/her time and talent to further public safety through search and rescue activity and education. It is expected that such recognition may inspire others to give of themselves. The award may also serve to heighten a focus on outdoor safety, lead to more financial support, and may promote further participation in SAR service.

The award will be announced at a public function, such as the March "Winter Gathering" of the White Mountains SAR community. There will be a physical token of the award, such as a photograph with a suitable inscription, given to the recipient. There will also be public notice of the award given via a press release, etc. There will also be a permanent plaque listing award recipients at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department headquarters in Concord.

Typically, the award will not be given more than once a year, and indeed, it should not be expected that such an award will be given each year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The characterization of individuals eligible for the award is inclusive of many categories; it is open to anyone who has served the citizens of and visitors to the Granite State in backcountry search and rescue. It encompasses the region "from Coos to the Sea."

While typically one might expect it to be given to members of SAR teams, unusual circumstances may indicate that non-members have earned such recognition. Any individuals participating in or supporting backcountry search and rescue (including P (Preventive) SAR – backcountry safety education) – including volunteers, and paid personnel of local, state or federal agencies – are eligible.

Pre-Application Information:

Any individual may nominate a candidate (except for himself or herself) for the award. The nomination will take the form of a detailed letter outlining how the candidate meets the criteria for the award and how the candidate has truly provided extraordinary service in backcountry search and rescue in New Hampshire.

Typically, such nominations will come from SAR team members or public safety professionals, but suggestions from the general public are also accepted. Additional letters of support, or other relevant supporting material, will strengthen the candidate's case. Nominators may be contacted by the NHOC Board for further information about the candidate.
