Sammy Awards

"A Recognition of Community Collaboration"

Sammy trophyThe Clark County Sammy Awards recognizes individuals, groups, organizations, or projects for their outstanding contributions to salmon recovery in Clark County. Because citizen participation is essential to regional efforts to recover the fish, Clark County implemented the Sammy Awards in 2001 to encourage more individual involvement and to recognize the good work thatís already being done.

Sammy nominations are evaluated according to a variety of factors, such as the benefits to wild salmon, best available science, or whether the project or individual went above or beyond what was expected or required. Award categories include habitat restoration, education and outreach, youth award, and special achievement award.  This year former Clark County Commissioner and State Representative Betty Sue Morris was honored with a special Sammy Award for her many years of leadership in developing measures for salmon and other fish.
