Volunteers of the Year

2016 Osborne Volunteers of the Year

The Big Sky State Games 2016 Osborne Volunteers of the Year are Paolo Gerbasi and family (Youth Soccer), Barb Lawson (Golf), Dan Walker (BSSG Board of Directors), and Brian Anttila (Shooting). The award was named after Tom Osborne and his family; Tom was the Big Sky State Games founder and Executive Director from 1986-1996. It was the vision and volunteer spirit of the Osborne Family that initiated and sustained the early years of the Big Sky State Games. The Osborne Volunteer of the Year award provides the opportunity to reward volunteers who follow through with that same spirit of service, commitment, and enthusiasm for the Big Sky State Games. Kampgrounds of America provides the Volunteer of the Year awards.
