Each year WVSPS conducts a surveyors raffle at the annual convention each year. The money raised from the raffle funds the WVSPS Future Surveyor Award which helps aspiring surveying students by providing them with needed equipment and supplies. The prize is not given freely. These students must first meet a set of criteria and perform certain assignments established by the WVSPS Education Committee chairman. It is important to support the younger generation who will one day step into our shoes. We hope this year’s event will be even more successful than before.
So, how can you help? Please consider donating items that would be appealing to our members. Even if you are unable to attend the convention this year, you can still participate! Please contact our office regarding the items you would like to donate and we will help make that happen on your behalf. Examples of past contributions include (but are not limited to) the following: functional equipment, software or applications, books, video or graphic supplies, retail gift certificates, collectibles, handcrafted items, promotional items from suppliers, mugs, t-shirts, caps, food, wine, etc.
Please let us know which items you would like to donate by contacting us at email@example.com.
WVSPS also holds a map contest at the Annual Convention every year. If you would like to help sponsor the contest, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsors will have their names listed with the maps.
Thank you for considering your contributions to this important endeavor. We hope to see you in February.
