CALL FOR NOMINATIONS - 2017 Streeter Award for Service to Marathon Swimming
Please submit your nominations for the Streeter Award for Service to Marathon Swimming, by commenting on this thread. Anonymous/private nominations are accepted via the contact form, but this is generally discouraged in favor of public nominations.
The Streeter Award (named after Freda Streeter) is meant to hono(u)r individuals who have contributed most meaningfully to the sport of marathon swimming in a non-swimming role. It is meant to hono(u)r the individuals who demonstrate that no "solo swim" is truly solo - the crew members, kayakers, pilots, observers, race directors, volunteers, and administrators who facilitate the fulfillment of swimmers' dreams. It is meant to hono(u)r the individuals whose passion keeps the spirit of the sport alive and vibrant.
In your nominations, please explain why the individual(s) deserves the nomination.
Finalists will be selected on the basis of community support, as measured by "Likes." So, if you agree with a nomination and want to "second" it, click the "Like" button on that nomination. Nominations will remain open for approximately three weeks.
