The MKT Awards are presented nationally to a select few individuals who have observed and recorded the weather for AES, day in day out, often in their own backyards, for at least 30 years.

The four recipients were: Alan Channon of Richmond Hill, Louis Stadelmann of Saltford ON (near Goderich ON), J David O'Brien of Fairport (near Scarborough ON) and William Whiffin of Toronto.

Two further recipients - Thomas Havey of Arnprior and JJ Coffey of Sharon (near London ON), received their MKT Awards during Environment Week, June 4-10, 1989. The ceremony was arranged by Dave Dockendorff, chief of Data Acquisition, Ontario Region.
