The annual Silva Award for Services to Orienteering in Australia has been presented to Barbara and Ron Junghans. This award reflects their contribution to orienteering in Australia over a period of decades, culminating in their stewardship of the highly successful 2017 Australian Championships carnival.
Other major service awards announced at Easter were made to Bob Mouatt (David Hogg Medal for Services to Event Management) and Wendy Read (Silva Award for Services to Coaching). Both have also been long-term contributors in their fields, both within their home states and nationally.
