Make Peak Pins and other awards more public and interactive on the website
Make Peak Pin and Paddle pins public on the website so members can see all of the neat awards their fellow members have completed and/or are working on. Plus we need to have good descriptions of the requirements for each of the awards.
We just completed editing and publishing the award badges that existed on our old website. They are at Membership > Badges, https://www.mountaineers.org/membership/badges/award-peak-pin-badges.
There are two for which we need badge images. We should have those by the end of March.
We’ll next work on adding badges; including content, images and roster; for our organization and branch service awards. We do not yet have this scheduled.
Please take a look and let us know if you have any questions or find anything that needs corrected.
Thanks to all you helped us get these done!

Create a dedicated webpage or section on your website specifically for showcasing Peak Pins, Paddle Pins, and other awards. This page can feature high-quality images of the awards, along with descriptions of the criteria required to earn them. Include a brief history of each award to give it context and significance. Feature stories or interviews with members who have earned notable awards. Highlight their journey, the challenges they overcame, and the impact the award had on them. This not only promotes the awards but also humanizes the achievements, inspiring others to strive for them.
Create an online tracking system where members can see their progress toward earning specific awards. This gamification element can encourage participation and dedication. https://www.paybyplatema.ltd/
By implementing these strategies, you'll not only make Peak Pins and other awards more visible and interactive but also foster a sense of community, pride, and motivation among your members. It's a fantastic way to celebrate their accomplishments and encourage others to achieve similar goals.

Implement leaderboards that display top achievers and contributors. This can foster healthy competition and motivate users to actively participate.
Engage users with quizzes or challenges related to the awards. This not only educates them about the awards but also adds an element of fun.
Feature testimonials from individuals who have earned Peak Pins or other awards. This can showcase the value of these recognitions.

I am probably a good contact person for background information on the Olympia Branch Sea Kayak paddle pins, requirements, existing artwork and recipients to date.
