Awards are given to Master Gardener Volunteers who have accumulated 150, 250, 500, 750, 1000, 2500, 5000, 7500 and 10,000 hours of volunteer service. Awards are sent to the local UW-Extension office for distribution locally. The names of award winners are determined from the WIMGA cumulative volunteer records database.
Local associations may determine their own system for rewarding their Master Gardeners Volunteers. Some associations hold a recognition banquet or a pot-luck dinner at which they issue awards.
