This award reveals and celebrates the volunteer who has contributed greatly to the InfoComm association, and who is not recognized in other ways for that contribution. Somers was recognized for being the InfoComm Projection Shoot-Out Committee and Event Chairman from 1998 to 2001, and for being the driving force behind the creation and annual production of the accompanying Shoot-Out CDs and DVDs. During his tenure as Shoot-Out chair, he was also the Shoot-Out's Engineering Manager, directing and managing the technical design of the event from 1992 to 2001.

"Steve Somers has been a tireless champion of the AV industry and InfoComm International," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., xecutive director, InfoComm International. "From his service in the days of the Projection Shootout to his stellar teaching at InfoComm Shows, Steve has personified the ultimate InfoComm volunteer. It is InfoComm’s pleasure to honor Steve Somers with this award and also to thank Extron Electronics for supporting Steve in his volunteer service to the AV industry and the association."
