Community Craftsman Award

The Minwax Company is seeking entries for the 2009 award program.
The community Craftsman Award program recognizes woodworkers who have promoted community improvement through their woodworking skills. Qualified candidates include individuals, school, guilds, clubs, etc., who have used their woodworking or wood finishing talents in a way that has been beneficial to the community.
If you or your woodshop class or school have been involved in a woodworking project that has made your community a better place, here’s an opportunity that you do not want to miss.

From April through December 31, 2009, individuals and organizations across America may nominate themselves or someone in their community for the Minwax® Community Craftsman Award, designed to reward outstanding community service through woodworking.

Details For Entry
Qualified participants must engage in an activity that involves, but is not limited to, working with wood. The endeavor must promote the feeling of pride and satisfaction that is part of working with wood, and encourage the goal of community or self-improvement. Recent winners have included a woodworking guild that provided affordable furniture to local community groups, a vocational teacher who taught at-risk students woodworking skills and encouraged community involvement through their woodworking projects, and a woodcarvers’ association that supported a local zoo by donating hand-carved penguins to help fund a penguin habitat. Minwax® encourages all eligible woodworkers and craftspeople to enter the 2009 program.
