[ft-l] Volunteer of the Year Awards


The American Hiking Society is accepting nominations for their Volunteer of
the Year Awards.  The award acknowledges the nation's top volunteers based
on their contributions to trail maintenance and improvements. As part of
National Trails Day 2003, AHS will continue its tradition of honoring
outstanding citizens who dedicate their time and energy safeguarding
America's trails.  AHS's search covers all 50 states and one winner will be
chosen from each state.

This year the award is sponsored by Hi-Tec Outdoor Footwear and each winner
will receive a special framed certificate, a Volunteer of the Year T-shirt,
a copy of "Get Outside!" a directory of volunteer opportunities across
America, and a pair of Hi-Tec boots. Each nominator will receive a pair of
Thorlos socks.

The deadline for nominations is May 1st. The form is short and shouldn't
take more than 5 minutes of your time and this prestigious award is the
perfect way thank your deserving volunteers. To nominate your volunteer
