Judy Bond, 2nd VP, Awards

                  It is time to begin compiling your club’s GCNC award applications.  As you all probably know by now, GCNC has a new process this year to correlate with regional and national.  Most awards require only a 3-page, one-sided application.  The applications are to be mailed or emailed to the Category Chairman listed with the awards.  The list of available awards, the application form and the rules for applying as well as listings of the SAR and NGC awards can be found on our website, www.gardenclubsofnc.org, under the Awards tab.  The GCNC awards are also listed in the NC Gardener or you can email me and I will send you the relevant information and answer any questions you may have.
                  Please give special attention to Awards # 1 Maslin Award and # 2 Member Award of Honor.  Both of these awards honor an individual garden club member who has done outstanding work in furtherance of garden club objectives.  The Maslin Award is focused on work at the state level; applications are due to me by February 25th.  The Member Award of Honor is for your “worker bee” club member.  Applications are sent to your District Director; the District winner goes to the State; the State winner goes to the region; and the region winner is a national winner.  Every club has a member worth honoring; please nominate your fabulous members!

Youth Award Applications for SAR are due December 1.   For GCNC Youth Awards the deadline is March 1.  Please see the GCNC website for specifics about both Senior Club and Youth awards.  The deadline for Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl is listed on the website.  www.gardenclubofnc.org.
