Jenni Jamieson Award

 

The Award

An annual presentation to be made by Eureka Orienteers in memory of the outstanding contributions made by Jenni Jamieson to the Club over many years.  Individuals, groups or organisations may be nominated for this award at any point in the calendar year, by sending information to a member of the Committee. The nomination process will close on November 30 each year in order that the Committee can consider the merits of each and make the announcement at the Eureka Orienteers Annual Meeting in December.

Nominations should address elements of the following criteria, but just as Jenni’s involvement was diverse, a nomination will not be excluded because it fails to meet all criteria.

The award commenced in 2007.

Criteria for Nominations

An individual, group or organisation whose:

  • Action promotes interest and involvement in the sport of orienteering and a love of the Australian bush.
  • Determination has seen a project or innovation succeed.
  • Long term involvement in the sport of orienteering has established practices which by their very excellence have been adopted as a matter of course.
  • Action has not necessarily been formally recognised in other areas.

The Award itself will not only have a physical perpetual element, but will also encompass an additional aspect which in the opinion of the Committee suits the special interests of the recipient. The Award will commence in 2007 and be presented annually.
