SNAG is looking for the next Volunteer Recognition Award Brooch design!
Each 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.
SNAG would like to take this opportunity to recognize our Corporate Members for their support: AGTA, Halstead, Pocosin Arts, and Shapeways.

The SNAG Board has awarded the 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award to Boris Bally. Started in 2015 by the SNAG Board of Directors, the Award recognizes and publicly acknowledges a volunteer’s contribution to SNAG.
Boris has been an enthusiastic and generous SNAG volunteer for many years. He has served on the Board of Directors and the Editorial Advisory Committee. Boris has participated in many SNAG community-led projects, most recently his “Ransom” project where he sold 100 of his brooches and asked the purchasers to take selfies wearing the piece they bought. He then donated a portion of the sales to SNAG as his personal way of giving back!
Boris will receive the Volunteer Recognition Award during this year’s Membership Meeting at SNAGneXt. Read more
