At the ceremony earlier that evening, Rocco Landesman said, "Builders and designers of dog sleds that have been used by racing champions in the most demanding of cross-country races, including the Iditarod, Paul and Darlene Bergren are teachers of new generations of craft artists in the skills and knowledge needed for excellent design and bespoke construction."
