Florida Chapter of MWA awards the Flamingo Award to a chapter member for service to the chapter: Victoria Landis

And here's a very odd award that is given out:
The FlaMANgo Award: This award is given out at the Saturday night cocktail party to the guy who gets the most votes from the women at the conference.  Sometimes, it's about what they look like, and sometimes it's about what a mensch they are/have been for us. You never know.  C.J. Box won this year.

HT: Victoria Landis
