Established in 2004, the Distinguished Service Award annually recognizes an MDDC volunteer whose extraordinary service effort has made a profound and lasting difference to MDDC organization and membership.
Each annual winner is presented an engraved bowl at MDDC’s Hall of Fame & Distinguished Service Award Program, traditionally held in late May at the University of Maryland, College Park. In addition, a $500 contribution is made to the MDDC Press Foundation in the winner’s name.
