BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The International Mountain Bicycling Association has come up with a new award to honor exceptional volunteers and their IMBA chapters. The new award is named for Scott "Superman Scud" Scudamore, a volunteer, activist and bike retail salesman from Virginia. Scudamore died in 2013 following a bike park crash. 

The Scott Scudamore National Volunteerism Leadership Award will award a complete mountain bike to a worthy individual and $5,000 in cash to the volunteer's associated IMBA chapter.

IMBA is seeking a sponsor to provide the bike and cash award. The group is accepting proposals for sponsorship through August 30. 

The award honors outstanding individuals who are making a significant contribution to the mountain bicycling community. All members in the IMBA database will be emailed with an opportunity to nominate candidates; the winner will be decided by a vote of IMBA regional staff.

The presentation ceremony will take place at the 2016 IMBA World Summit on November 10 at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, in Bentonville, Arkansas. It will be featured in all IMBA communications and distributed to media.

In a typical year IMBA volunteers contribute "sweat equity" valued at $2.8 million to the establishment and upkeep of these recreation facilities. 

Companies interested in sponsoring the award can read the full Request for Proposal (pdf). Proposals should be written in letter format and sent to before midnight MDT on August 30.
