    In 1975 Lillian Stoner, a founding member of the Federation of New York State Bird Clubs (now NYSOA), donated money to the organization to establish a fund to enable a student to attend the Annual Meeting each year. The intent of the award is not to recognize past achievement but rather to foster a promising young person’s interest in birds and ornithology by offering the education and experience of the fall conference.

    Candidates may be anywhere along the birding skill spectrum from beginner to advanced. Our objective is to select winners whose attendance at the Annual Meeting will positively influence their desire to pursue birding and/or ornithology as a lifelong interest. NYSOA considers students who have demonstrated a sustained interest in birds, whether through independent birding, feeder watching, volunteering at a local sanctuary, photographing or painting birds, or doing research.

    Each winner receives a certificate and a minimum of $200 to help defray the cost of attending the Annual Meeting.
