The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc has an active awards program for its membership. The purpose of the awards program is to recognize the achievements of an individual, a club or group of clubs which further the goals and objectives of The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc, the South Atlantic Region and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
What better way to celebrate the achievements of an outstanding project than by winning an award! What better way to call attention to the great work your garden club is doing in the neighborhood, city or state than by winning an award! AND, an award winning club will attract new members!
So pick one or several … the awards program has a number of categories from which to choose, not only for North Carolina but for the South Atlantic Region, and for National Garden Club. So, pick one today, complete the work and send in the application. Winning awards is fun for everyone.
Any time a new award is created, there will assuredly be some wrinkles.. I have had inquiries about award P-6 award under Programs Awards. I hope to clarify some of the issues:
P-2 and P-3 are program awards for the Program Lending File. These are not regular or ongoing projects.
P-4 and P-5 are programs for youth clubs.
P-6 is an award designed to recognized the use of media – usually a power point but could be slides or a CD – on a regular basis for club programs and presentations. A one time presentation is not a regular basis. When constructing this award, the club member in charge should include a description, explain how this activity benefits the club membership, how does this activity meet the objectives of the Garden Club of North Carolina, costs involved with the activity. These are a few ideas there could be others. The project would be ongoing.
There is no need to send a complete power point or slide program. Include in the application some sample pictures showing how the activity is being used. No thumb drives should be included in the application, nor CD’s. But be sure to label the pictures so that the category chairman for Program Awards will understand what she is looking at.
The award should remain within the 3 page requirement of GCNC awards.
The following question was raised by a club member during our recent district visits.
Will the copy of the program be counted as part of the 3 page award application?
CLARIFICATION OF AWARD P-2 GEORGIA MIXON PROGRAM AWARD
This application essentially consists of 2 parts:
PART 1: APPLICATION FOR AWARD P-2
Submit the 3 pages as you would for any other award. This part should be judged by the category chairman
PART 2: PAPER COPY OF THE PROGRAM BEING SUBMITTED FOR THE PROGRAM LENDING FILE.
The paper copy of the program should not be counted as the original 3 pages. This is the part that will go to our office manager to place in our program files. However, it will be referenced by the category chairman as she judges the award. The copy of the program will likely consists of several pages as details of the program are explained.
Hope this makes sense to everyone
