BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA — -(Ammoland.com)-There are no greater friends to ducks and duck hunters than Delta Waterfowl’s passionate, dedicated volunteers.
They organize fundraising banquets, manage local conservation projects, host First Hunt events for new waterfowlers and provide Delta with resources to meet critical program objectives. Indeed, they are the lifeblood of Delta’s mission to produce ducks and secure the future of waterfowl hunting.
In annually naming a Volunteer of the Year, The Duck Hunters Organization celebrates the thousands of selfless, devoted individuals across the United States and Canada who make its work possible.
“We greatly appreciate the efforts of all of Delta’s volunteers,” said Dr. Scott Petrie, chief executive officer. “This year’s VOY award candidates have truly embraced Delta’s efforts to boost the fall flight and protect the tradition of waterfowl hunting.”
The seven finalists are:
Green Country Chapter
Branch County Chapter
Greenhead Nation Chapter
Agassiz 4-Curls Chapter
Fargo, North Dakota
Lamar County Chapter
The Volunteer of the Year will be chosen exclusively through online voting, so make your voice count: Visit deltawaterfowl.org/VOY through July 31 to view profiles of each candidate. Voting opens July 1.
Thanks to Lowe Boats, sponsor of Delta’s 2016 VOY Award, the winner will receive a Roughneck 1756 — a 16-foot, 10-inch, camouflaged, all-welded, all-aluminum johnboat — complete with a trailer. In addition, the winner will be profiled in the Fall Issue of Delta Waterfowl magazine.
