Distinguished Service Award

Wir brauchen Hilfe bei der Übersetzung

 DeMolay International established the Distinguished Service Award in the fall of 1959. In some jurisdictions, this award is known as the "DeMolay of the Year" award. The purpose of the award is to recognize one DeMolay in each jurisdiction for outstanding service to others, in his home, school, church, Chapter, community and country.

The Chapter's Advisory Council members select one or more members of the Chapter whom they believe worth of this recognition. Adult leaders in the community then are asked to evaluate the nominee's performance in various areas.

When all of the endorser's recommendations have been returned to the Chapter, the Advisory Council selects one Chapter member as its nominee for the Distinguished Service Award and sends the nomination to the Executive Officer. The Executive Officer also has the privilege of making a personal nomination. Nominations may be made twice a year.

After receiving the nominations from all the Chapters, the Executive Officer selects one of the DeMolays for the Distinguished Service Award.

Medal of Heroism

Wir brauchen Hilfe bei der Übersetzung

The Advisory Council may nominate a DeMolay who has performed an act of heroism for this honor. Nominations for his medal are made through the Executive Officer of a jurisdiction. Nomination forms are available from the Executive Officer or the Service and Leadership Center. Newspaper clippings and other subtantiating material should be included according to the instructions on the form. In considering this nomination, DeMolay International requires that the act of heroism be one in which the nominee was in danger of losing his own life. Many nominations have been submitted for this coveted award, but fewer than 150 have been granted since the Medal of Heroism was created in 1925.
