The last couple of years have thrown challenges at us, but there is evidence across the UK of those who have risen to the challenge, evolved, and looked at delivering activities and developing orienteering in new ways.
This award has been introduced to celebrate the efforts an individual, group, or club has put into delivering any new programme or initiative which supports the growth of orienteering. It is more about the idea rather than the scale, so this award could be perfect for a smaller club that is forward-thinking.
This award is for a volunteer who has demonstrated a commitment to supporting the delivery of orienteering activities with passion, energy, and enthusiasm.

This award recognises and celebrates the volunteer efforts of those in our sport who contribute greatly, often behind the scenes, over an extended period of time. This would be ideal to celebrate the efforts and commitment of a long-standing club or association committee member for example.
In 1983 SILVA (Sweden) AB decided to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the first Silva compass by establishing an annual award within each IOF member Federation. The awards were to enable Federations to honour those who have contributed in a special way to the development of orienteering. With the assistance of SILVA (UK) Ltd, this was interpreted, within the UK, as being a person or persons who have made a very significant contribution to orienteering over a period of years, with an emphasis on ‘field' activities rather than committee work. Indeed, nominees may not be active or retiring members of the British Orienteering Board, nor part- or full-time employees of the Federation.
All members can nominate someone they believe has made a significant contribution to orienteering through ‘field’ activities.
