A personal award was awarded Sanna to Ilose. When asking for proposals for the award recipients, Ilonen was a superior candidate and his selection was justified, e.g. as follows:
- Sanna is open, positive and she radiates wonderful Karelian and Imatra-likeness in all its openness. In the previous year, 2017, people interested in movies literally flooded Bio Vuo from Lappeenranta and the entire province. The Bio Vuoksi movie theater seems to have established itself over the years as part of Imatra's cultural tradition.
- Sanna has made Vuoksenniska and Bio Vuokse famous in the province. She is an active female entrepreneur and local cultural worker. He got e.g. From Vuoksenniskan's middle schoolers to the waiting room of a wonderful miniature model, which is related to the Unknown Soldier.
- Sanna is sympathetic, caring, listening, encouraging and, despite her small size, strong and likes the weaker sides. As an entrepreneur, a friendly and responsible happy person.
