Awards are presented yearly to MGVs who have given exceptional service to the program. Award cards are given for completion of 150, 250, 500, and 750 hours of volunteer service. A certificate is awarded for 1000 hours, while special awards are given for higher levels. These awards are sent to the county UW-Extension office for distribution locally. Awards are based on records of volunteer service in the statewide database, so it is essential that MGVs turn in their hours regularly to be eligible for awards.
