Stanley Long AwardThe Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is seeking nominations for the Stanley Long Outstanding Volunteer Service Award.  The deadline for nominations is March 20, 2012.

The Outstanding Volunteer Service Award Program was created in 2003 to publicize and recognize the contributions made to Pennsylvania anglers and boaters by Commission volunteers.  The program identifies and honors the Commission’s most exemplary and inspiring volunteer.  Although volunteers are best characterized as unsung heroes, their tireless efforts and voluminous contributions augment and ensure public safety and provide services to countless Commonwealth anglers and boaters.  The award serves as a memorial to long-time volunteer Stanley Long.
