Course Setter of the Year

The annual Course Setter of the Year Award (the Graeme Mitchell Trophy) is awarded on the basis of competitor voting via an online survey.

For each State League or national event set by an ONSW member, a separate online survey will be made available on this page and all competitors will be able to undertake the survey. Surveys will remain open for a restricted time after each event, after which they will be closed and results collated.

The award will be presented at the annual Orienteering NSW awards in November.
