MnGeo seeks nominations for a Certificate of Commendation from the Governor for activities that exemplify a commitment to "coordinated, affordable, reliable and effective" use of GIS to improve services within Minnesota. The award honors organizations that have gone the extra mile to deliver products and services, improve government responsiveness, promote public access to information, and demonstrate the benefits of collaboration that encourage, by example, others to do the same.
The standards are high for this award and are detailed on the commendation webpage. Awards are presented in October at the annual MN GIS/LIS Consortium conference. The next nomination deadline is June 29, 2012.
