The NCTA honors volunteers for their hard work on and for the North Country Trail.
The awards ceremony is held each year during the annual NCTA Celebration. Those who receive these awards have given exceptional service, often many years’ worth, to the North Country Trail and the North Country Trail Association. There are diverse award categories to represent the myriad of efforts put forth for the Trail.
Nomination acceptance for 2020 awards closed May 1, 2020. In the future, nominate via the online form (below), or by downloading the form and emailing it to Larry Pio (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Nicole Murphy (email@example.com). Anyone can make a nomination. Descriptive detail is necessary to include in the nomination submission to allow the Awards Committee to adequately compare nominees.
If your nominee did not receive the award last time, please do not be discouraged! Nominate them again with as much information as possible. The Awards Committee is allowed to select three nominations in each category for recognition, aside from Trail Builder and Trail Maintainer (which now have up to five recipients). Who are you thankful for in your local Chapter, state or region?
