George Thomas Memorial Trophy For Off Roader Of The Year:This trophy is presented to the one individual whose contributions to the betterment of off-roading during the preceding year are worthy of this very special recognition. The recipient may be any individual who has provided special help to off-roading. The person does not have to be a member of CORVA or any affiliated organization. The nomination should be submitted with an explanation of the individuals accomplishments.
Los Aventureros State Conservation Award:
This award is presented to the individual club, which during the year, has contributed the most towards conservation. Please contact us for more details.
Past Presidents Trophy:This trophy is sponsored by the Past Presidents of CORVA. Unlike the aforementioned trophies which are voted upon by the CORVA Board of Directors after hearing nominations, this trophy is at the sole discretion of the Past Presidents. The recipient is an individual who has shown great merit and achieved honorable accomplishments on behalf of the off-road community.
Looney Duners Trophy to Charity:
To be eligible for this award, the club must belong to CORVA. The award goes to the club that donates the most time and effort to charity. Money is not a factor.
American Buggy Association Political Activism Award:To have ones name added to this plaque requires exceptional activity in dealing with elected officials and civil servants. This means personal contact as well as effective letter writing. While significant success is not always possible, it is important that some progress toward a goal was achieved. In addition, this persons efforts should always increase the perception of CORVA as a political powerhouse.
Northern & Southern Club Awards:These awards are given annually to one club in each region, Northern and Southern. Each club shall submit what it deems to be its outstanding project for the year. These projects will be considered by the Board of Directors, which shall award the trophy to that project it deems best bolsters the image of off-roading. If your club has done a project please apply.
Over the years each of the CORVA perpetual awards has names added to them. Here are the names that date back to 1972.
