The many successes of Fermilab's kindergarten through 12th grade educational
programs depend on the talents of over 200 volunteers who help out each year.
Whether it is simply meeting with students and teachers to explain what Fermilab
about or designing, building and maintaining Lederman Science exhibits,
the K-12 students and teachers in these programs benefit
both directly and indirectly from the volunteers.
Director Michael Witherell has announced an annual award of $1000, made
possible by an anonymous donor, to recognize some of the volunteers whose
contributions go beyond the usual level of support. The award recipient will
be recognized at the annual fall Volunteers' Reception which will be
at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 4 on the second floor crossover.
Awardees will be selected from nominations. To submit a nomination, download
a nomination form or pick up a
form from Jackie Coleman, WH2E.
Forms must be received by Friday, October 8 to be considered for the 2004 award.
Nominations should be submitted to Jackie Coleman at MS105
Nominees must be a Fermilab staff member, user or contractor. Nominations will
be held for two consecutive years.
