The idea sounds good. Generally in the Ambassadors Project we use to
call each 6 months the "Fedora Ambassadors Award" where we prize the
most productive and active ambassadors (from 6 to 8 people). Now it's
too late for such contest but FAmSCo can modify the rules choosing
directly the ambassadors to award.

As i said before the maximum number of awarded ambassadors are 8, so
if you agree with this proposal we can distribute with such initiative
8 subscriptions to the people FAmSCo will choose: it would give those
subscription more value.
