Awards Nominations Needed

Colorado/Wyoming Chapter has four awards for recognizing our fisheries professionals and the Awards Committee needs your help in determining qualified candidates to receive awards at the 2019 Annual Meeting. This is an opportunity for you to become involved and see that your professional peers receive their deserved recognition from the American Fisheries Society.
(1) Award of Excellence: Recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions in the fishery-aquatic resource field.
(2) Max Award of Merit: In honor of Max Rollefson (WGFD), this “atta boy” recognizes a short-term professional accomplishment in management, administration, research, or culture.
(3) Outstanding Mentor Award: This award recognizes a fisheries professional who has shown substantial devotion to assisting or mentoring prospective fisheries students/professionals, current fisheries students, or fisheries professionals.
(4) Leaky Boot Award: Recognizes the most outrageous behavior of any fisheries student or professional in the year prior to the Chapter’s Annual Meeting.

The deadline to nominate will be January 31, 2020. For more information on how to nominate your peers please contact Travis Neebling at (307) 233-6410 or
