Each year, the Budgerigar Society looks to recognise hobbyists who have made a significant and enduring contribution to the development of the budgerigar hobby by inducting them into the Budgerigar Society Hall of Fame. We honour those who have made a significant contribution without necessarily being previously recognised by other means, such as Honorary Life Membership, Budgerigar Society President, Silver Bird Award etc.
Without these inductees and their contributions, the hobby and our lives would not be the same. We owe these people our gratitude for providing us with inspiration and for laying the foundation for what is yet to come.
Individuals selected for induction will join other honoured budgerigar hobby members including administrators, product developers, manufacturers, hobby leaders and educators – some of the most outstanding people in our hobby. As a member of the Budgerigar Society, you have the power to nominate someone you believe has made a key difference to our hobby.
Hall of Fame nominees must have contributed in a significant way, either nationally or globally, to the growth and professionalism of the budgerigar hobby or hobby organisations including but not limited to the Budgerigar Society.
Nominees should have made significant contributions, beyond having successful hobby careers, that have notably helped advance the interests and image of the hobby and still be alive at the time of nomination.
Hall of Fame nominees should have a combination of the following characteristics:
Nominations received by the deadline date each year will be reviewed and discussed by the Budgerigar Society Board and the Budgerigar Society General Council. Following the agreement of inductees, the announcement of new members to the Budgerigar Society Hall Of fame to be made at the Annual General Meeting, following which letters of congratulations are mailed to the inductees. An acknowledgement notice is sent to the members who submitted the nomination form for the new inductees.
Complete your nomination by filling out the paper form available from the BS Administrator or use the online form.
Nominations must be received by the Budgerigar Society Administrator by 31st December each year. Nominations received after this date will not be considered.
The Budgerigar Society maintains a ‘photo gallery’ of all Hall of Fame members on-line at www.budgerigarsociety.com. In addition, inductees will receive recognition in the Society’s magazine, The Budgerigar and via the fancy press and other associated media.
