Monthly BBN Awards

Two awards are available to BBN teams on a monthly basis:

  • Team of the Month Recognizes the service and commitment of a particular BBN team. Teams are eligible to win once per calendar year, with recognition of their excellent service work posted on the FBB blog and in the BBN Facebook group.

  • Picture of the Month Recognizes excellent photographs of our teams in action, with the winning picture being shared on our blog and displayed as the banner picture in the BBN Facebook group for that month. Photos submitted with event reports are all considered for this award. Pictures should be high-quality, show a number of team members, and capture those members in action rather than posed.
