- Supplemental Information is defined as one side of two sheets of paper with photographs, clippings, and other documentation showing what you’ve done in the award category during the year. This means you may submit two pages that are each one-sided.
- The Award Application and Supplemental Information are to be stapled in the upper left corner rather than placed in a report folder
- You must be available for scheduled award interviews: October 25 or October 27 in the evening
- Awards will be presented on Sunday, November 13, 2016
(!) Clarification: Youth may only receive the Peer Award once as a Junior, once as an Intermediate and once as a Senior. Youth may receive a Record Book Award every year they submit a record book. This applies to Citizenship and Leadership, exception Senior Leadership.
(!) The Citations section on the rubric says to cite EVERY photo and article, etc. If you’ve included photos you took or your family took, please indicate that general statement in a visible spot toward the front; you won’t have to cite each photo. You will need to cite each newspaper article or photo, though.
