The Award of Merit

The Award of Merit was established to recognize continuing volunteerism by individuals and their contribution to their club over a number of years. 

 Clubs are asked to submit their nominations for this award by December 31st of each year. 

 From the nominations received, the Executive of Bowls Saskatchewan selects up to 3 members for recognition in any given year.  Subsequent submissions of individuals who have not been selected in any given year may be resubmitted again.  Recipients of this award are only recognized once.
