Accepting Nominations - The Michael Wade Duel Master Volunteer Award

The FIRST Community does a terrific job of recognizing volunteers and mentors. The planners of the Duel event would like to continue the tradition with the 3nd Annual Duel Master Volunteer Award.

This award is a combination of the FIRST Woodie Flowers Award, FIRST Unsung Hero Award, and the FIRST Volunteer Recognition Award. This award celebrates a FIRST team mentor, who demonstrates the spirit and values of what FIRST is all about.

In honor of Mike Wade, who made the Duel on the Delaware possible by providing his NASA field and much assistance since 2001, this award will now be called the “Michael Wade Duel Master Volunteer Award.” Mike exemplified what we are recognizing with the Duel Master Volunteer Award, so it only fitting that this award acknowledges Mike’s contributions.

Teams attending the Duel on the Delaware will have an opportunity to acknowledge and recognize one of their own for contributions to their team and to FIRST.

Those previously recognized include Dina Campagna, Team 341, and Bob Foell, Team 433.

If your team is attending the Duel on the Delaware on October 13, please consider nominating a team member for this award. Nominations are e-mail only as described in the following attachment and are due by OCTOBER 1st.
