LiskUSA is proud to announce the third annual Lisk All-Stars Awards.
The Lisk All-Stars Awards began in 2019 to highlighting amazing members of the Lisk Community. What started as an expansive list has been narrowed down to around a dozen categories to put a spotlight on specific contributions and efforts worthy of recognition. LiskUSA has selected community members who have exemplified the level of effort, talent, and commitment required to be an All-Star of their selected category.
The All-Stars are non-forging delegates, so often times, these members are the unsung heroes of the community. As a reward, each All-Star will be receive a donation of 50 Lsk. This is just a small token of gratitude for the great contributions and we encourage to give recognition to these community members for their hard effort as well.
There are many contributors to our quickly growing Lisk ecosystem. Narrowing it down to the final winners was tough as there are many excellent choices, so we are proud to announce the Lisk All-Stars 2021:

Excellence in Meetup Hosting
Since Meetups are on hiatus for now, we have extended this award to include maintaining community growth. LiskUSA considers itself to be on the front lines when it comes to hosting and representing Lisk especially with the current global pandemic situation. So we know just how difficult it is. However, this All-Star continues to keep the Seattle Community on the Map.
So this award goes to Lisk89. Check out https://twitter.com/LiskSeattle to follow the growth of Lisk Seattle.
