OUTSTANDING GRANGER CONTEST

Guideline Form

An initiated Grange member may be nominated for the Outstanding Granger Award. This award is presented at the final banquet of the State Convention to the deserving person or persons.

A sponsor will nominate the person and prepare a booklet about the nominee for the judges to use to make their decision. The notebook should contain:

 

•  Letters of recommendation.

•  Information about the person's Grange activities and achievements.

•  Articles.

•  Pictures.

•  Other supportive material, (i.e. involvement with organizations other than Grange).

 

Entries are due in the State Grange Office by September 10th. The State Master will appoint a committee to judge the entries. The winner is not announced until the banquet, and may be kept a surprise if the sponsor so wishes.

 

A plaque noting this award is given to the winner, as well as a special name badge that will always denote that the person received this special honor.
