We could revive the Fedora Awards thing.  Strawman:

1) 3 awards given out per year
2) Candidates have to be nominated, cannot self-nominate.
3) Cannot have won a Fedora Award in the past.
4) Nominations are collected for 2 weeks, then a vote is held.

Maybe a peer-nominated, peer-elected award that recognized significant
contributions to Fedora would go over better than the original way it was
