Western Division AFS Awards

The deadline for WDAFS 2020 Award nominations is

Sunday, January 17, 2020

Each year, the Western Division bestows awards on members, organizations, Chapters, and Subunits that have distinguished themselves through their contributions to the Division, our members, and fisheries and aquatic resources.  We all know individuals or entities that are worthy of recognition.  Please take the time to nominate them for a 2020 WDAFS award!

Individual Awards are given to AFS members and non-members that have made significant contributions to fisheries education, science, management, and conservation.  Organization Awards are bestowed on entities such as agencies, tribes, private entities, and non-profit organizations that have stood out for their contribution to fisheries conservation.  Outstanding Chapter and Student Subunit Awards are given to the WDAFS units whose activities and contributions have significantly advanced the Western Division’s mission and the American Fisheries Society’s Strategic Plan.

Award descriptions, eligibility criteria, and instructions for submitting nominations are described for each award category.   If you have questions, please contact Jacksie Watson at ([email protected]).
