    The Charles Metcalf and Instructor of the Year Awards are given annually by the IASC to recognize individuals that devote much time to educating our youth in the various aspects required to become a legal, safe, courteous, etc Snowmobiler.

    Each year we ask the IASC Membership to nominate deserving snowmobile safety instructors to add to this list. These individuals are recognized at the SEP Brunch at the annual Convention.

    The Charles Metcalf nominee should be a person who has been dedicated to and has done an outstanding job of teaching snowmobile safety education for many years — need not be actively teaching at this time. The Instructor of the Year nominee should be a person who is presently teaching and doing an outstanding job.
