They do this by collecting and managing money that is then distributed as scholarships and awards to individuals and clubs, who are contributing to the development of Swedish orienteering.

Here's the motivation:

"An association from northern latitudes. For a number of years, Älvsby IF OK has been characterized by a broad and systematic recruitment and education activity. Getting the whole family active has become a successfull concept . Leadership training for parents brings on a sustainable and fine youth activity."

The finest honor of the Skogssportens Gynnare is the Gold Cone. It has been distributed by Skogssportens Gynnare since 1983.

Anders Bennitz from OK Renen receives the Skogssportens Gynnares Guldkotte 2019 for his fantastic contribution to Swedish Ski Orienteering 2019.

Here's the motivation:

"Last winter, Sweden organized the Ski orienteering World Championships in Piteå. A fantastic event with fine performances, which echoed in the media. There were many who were involved in the event and made the SkidO-WC a success. All officials are important, but one of them did stand out - the Secretary General.

With a stedy hand he steered the work. With the gift of the word, he spread calmness and a great smile among all - No matter how tired you are, you always have a smile left, a smile for your volunteers, a smile for your competitors and not least a smile for yourself. - is Anders own words of wisdom "
