“Competing is about effort and optimism as well as overcome challenges, and never, ever giving up!”

The Mentor Award – is given to the SSASO member who has shown enthusiasm in providing advice and support to help another musher(s) learn, grow, and achieve success in the sport.

The Rookie Award – is given to the SSASO member who is new to the sport and has shown significant improvement and success in caring for, handling and running their team.

The Handler Award – is given to a person who has shown exceptional skill and dedication in ensuring the success of both dog and driver alike by assisting in all aspects of team care, safety, and comfort.
