And there is only one way to become a Shover and Maker: declare yourself one.
No one knows what you have been doing all year as well as you do. No one knows what motivates you, what your professional passions are, why you work so hard on behalf of your patrons, clients or co-workers. So only you really know why you are a winner. Please write a quick profile of why you are a winner this year, and it will get published on this site.
Of course I nominated myself and I’m loving reading everyone else’s. So head over there and declare yourself a Shover and Maker!
