Outstanding Host Awards Nominations!

December 27, 2013

The New Years holiday is a perfect time to reflect on the progress we made, the projects we completed, and the relationships we developed over the last year. At Oregon State Parks, we reflect knowing that all of the above and more is only possible with the help of our dedicated volunteers. Now turn that reflection into recognition! This New Year, we offer you the opportunity to commend the volunteers you know for their contribution to our special places by nominating them for the 2014 Outstanding Host Awards.

Now through January 30th, we are accepting nominations for the Outstanding Hosts you have come to know! If you are an Oregon State Parks employee or volunteer working in any capacity for OPRD, YOU can nominate a park host or host couple for their outstanding efforts over the past year.

Judges rely solely on the information provided in your nomination packet, and will only consider completed nominations. So we encourage you to elaborate and be creative with your message. Consult other parks or volunteers about their experience with your nominee. Send photos. Sing a song. Be thorough! We want to know why this particular host is the MOST outstanding host you’ve worked with this year. The more detail, the more likely your nominee will stand out.

Want a nomination packet sent to you?

OPRD park employees – Please contact your region’s Visitor Experience Coordinator.

Everyone else – Please contact the Visitor Experience Lead, Vera Vollbrecht, at or (503) 986-0749.

We all know they have been working alongside us all along, those outstanding hosts… Let’s give them the recognition they have earned. Please help us by distributing this call far and wide, and remember, nominations are due January 30th!

Happy reflecting! …and Happy New Year!
