Each year the safety committee promotes good safe digging
practices. Each DOT district nominates potential winners for their
district (nomination form which includes selection criteria can be
found in the LIBRARY of this section). Nomination forms are usually
filled out in August and submitted the first week of September to
the Safety Committee.
One district winner usually stands out and this company/person
becomes our "Lester Feathers" Award Winner. Our committee
celebrates all the winners at the Fall GUCC conference each year in
an annual presentation that is very fun and creative and is a
highlight of our Fall Conference.
