Volunteer Recognition

Milestone Awards

Volunteers are eligible for milestone awards (a printed certificate and small pin) when they surpass:

  • 250 hours
  • 500 hours
  • 1000 hours
  • Each round 1000 hour amount after 1000 (e.g. 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, etc.)

Milestones are normally awarded once per year around the time of Master Gardener College (early summer). If you are an agent or coordinator, monitor your email in late winter for a request for your milestone awards from the previous year.

If you need to request milestone awards at a different point during the year, do so with our milestone request form here.
