Introducing SNAG Speaks!

SNAG Speaks is a series of short videos featuring SNAG’s Board of Directors, Staff, and the Connects Council. These videos are meant to answer questions that you, our members, have about our organization. This will include the projects that SNAG is focusing on now, and what we are doing to make these a reality, while also giving you, our members, an inside look into the lives of our SNAG team. As an organization, it is our goal to connect with our members and keep you informed. We sincerely hope you enjoy these videos and we want to thank you for making SNAG all that it can be.

Our first video comes to you from our Executive Director, Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith.

Volunteer Recognition Award Brooch Design Contest

SNAG is looking for the next Volunteer Recognition Award Brooch design!

2015 VRA pinEach awardee receives a specially designed brooch as a thank you from SNAG. Every three years SNAG looks for a new design from a school/group of students. The first design (2015) was created by Ross Tanner and Grand Valley State University. We thank them for this first amazing design.

SNAG is now looking for a new design for the next three years. Any group of students and/or school are eligible to submit a design (drawing/CAD/3D model) for the next three awardees starting in 2018. There is a stipend of $1,200 (total) for the three brooches and a free one year organizational membership for the winning school.

Please submit your design proposals to Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith by March 9, 2018.
