Nick Carter Volunteer Recognition Awards

The American Philatelic Society (APS) reports nominations are being accepted for the 2009 Nicholas G. Carter Volunteer Recognition Awards and will be presented at the Summer APS StampShow next year in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

There are four categories that "recognize volunteers that contribute their talents to benefit stamp collecting."

They are:

- National Promotion/Service — maximum of five recipients each year
- Local Promotion/Service — maximum of ten recipients each year
- Outstanding Young Adult Philatelist (ages 25–40) — one award each year
- Outstanding Young Philatelist (ages 15–24) — one award each year

All these awards require at least five years of service, though APS membership is not required. APS board members, staff, and Luff Award winners are not eligible. National Promotion/Service Award winners cannot subsequently win the Local Promotion/Service Award, and each award can be won only once. Winners receive the APS Volunteer Pin shown and a certificate.

Information and nomination forms for the Nicholas G. Carter Volunteer Recognition Awards are available on the APS website at The awards information is in the Almanac section, and can be accessed by using the “Almanac” tab at the far right at the top of the APS home page.

You can also send a letter requesting nomination a form to APS Awards Nominations, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823, or fax it to 814-933-6128. The deadline for receipt of nominations is December 15.
