Each year, the members of MCSCC choose the deserving individuals that will receive the most prestigious awards that the sanctioning body can give out. We urge everyone to participate in this most auspicious occasion. The paragraphs that follow describe the qualities and qualifications a nominee should possess for our special awards. A single person may be nominated in multiple categories; however, a single “all purpose” written nomination may NOT be submitted for multiple categories. All awards are given our at our annual banquet which is normally held in January of the following year. (ex: 2020 season awards given January 2021)
