Every year awards are given to fans who have helped Sime~Gen during the preceding 12 months.
The Golden Yo-Yo Awards were presented by the fanzine "Ambrov Zeor" for help and assistace to the zine.
The Digen Farris Memorial Meritorious Service Award - awarded for outstanding service on behalf of Sime~Gen.
The Risa Tigue Reusable Award: Gen fandom operated primarily via snail mail for almost 20 years before going online in the fall of 1996. Many longtime fans, including some of the fanzine editors, were essentially cut off from mainstream fandom by the shift.
This award honors Sime/Gen fans who have given their old computer systems to further the cause of other Sime/Gen fans' gaining email and Web access, and also the recipients of those computers for giving email and the Web a game try and, well, for just being themselves!
The Tech-ton Award was invented by Jacqueline Lichtenberg in 1997, this award goes to people who have benefitted Sime~Gen fandom by the creation and/or application of new software and online tools.
The Nager Awardis given to those who have given emotional support to others, guiding them through rough times or just generally "being there" when needed.
While there are six "set" awards sometimes new awards are made up on the fly when it is realized that someone has done something particularly special that no award already in existence covers.
Created in 2002, this award for Creating Foundations is awarded to those individuals or organizations who have helped to create the Sime~gen fan universe or, who have proven indispensable in growing and maintaining the Fan section of the Simegen domain.
