BVA’s Awards Program honors annually the extraordinary professional achievements of a blind or low vision veteran, the outstanding level of service of a BVA member to their regional group, and a volunteer who has served blind and low vision veterans with unusual dedication and enthusiasm. The recognitions are, respectively, the Melvin J. Maas, Irving Diener, and David L. Schnair Awards. 

The program also recognizes, through annual Certificates of Appreciation, the professionals who go the extra mile in serving and supporting veterans and their families within VA Blind Rehabilitation Service or other organizations of and for the blind.
