In 2011 Prairie Women On Snowmobiles recieved the Elizabeth Eisenhauer Award for their continued contributions of 10 years. In organizing the Mission 2001 Ride for Breast Cancer, Prairie Women on Snowmobiles exhibited a great dedication to the cause.

The group was formed when two friends, one a breast cancer survivor, asked her friend to snowmobile across Saskatchewan to raise funds for breast cancer research. Together the two planned, organized and implemented PWOS. The goal since conception is to have this Mission go across Saskatchewan each and every year to raise the funding for breast cancer research.

Prairie Women On Snowmobiles won the prestigious Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association’s (SSA) President’s Award, which is presented for “Outstanding Contribution To The Development Of Snowmobiling In Saskatchewan” and is only presented when the SSA President Barry Bradshaw feels that there is a worthy recipient. It was presented during the Diamonds in the Snow annual convention held in Regina on June 21, 2008 and has only been awarded five years out of the past 16 years, since it’s inception in 1992. PWOS past president Daphne Wickstrom was also awarded the “2007-2008 Outstanding Volunteer Snowmobiler of the Year” award.

In addition to her trophy, Daphne(past president) also received an SSA embroidered Volunteer Snowmobiler of the Year jacket and a $450.00 gift certificate from Choko Design. As winners of Diamonds in the Snow Provincial Awards, PWOS and Daphne are automatically entered in the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations' (CCSO) Snowmobile Excellence Awards (SEA). If one of the entries wins, the award will be presented at the International Snowmobile Congress (ISC) held annually in June in the USA.

Past president Daphne also received an honourable mention in the SSA Photo contest. The winning picture was of the PWOS team riding through the Borden Bridge during the Mission 2008 ride. The photo appears on the bottom of the about us page.
