Also this year for Family-of-the-Year we will be using the application on the Supreme website. This application and the Service Programs Applications can be downloaded from the Supreme Website, or it can be found on the State Website along with all other award application at . 


Each application has a heading, which lists: 

          1) Title of Award  

          2) The person or council submitting the application 

          3) The name nominee. 

Once you have completed the heading, please DO NOT use the council name, parish name, nominee’s name, city or any wording that could identify the person, council or your location. If you do these references will be redacted (be blacked-out). This will make your document difficult to read and lessen its chances of being selected. We suggest that you write what you wish to say and then go back over your draft and remove any references in the write-up which could identify your nominee or council location. Liberally use the pronouns like he, him, his, them, they, or the parish, the church, or this family, they, them, or Father, the priest, etc.

Applications do not have to be typed, however please keep in mind that the applications do need to be neat, clear, concise, and readable. The best way of assuring this is if they are typed. If additional pages or attachments are provided, please make certain that they are identified as a continuation page for a particular award. 

Please keep write-ups to 500 words or less. Only one activity may be submitted per category. To qualify all Service Projects must have taken place during the 2017-2018 Fraternal Year.

Remember you cannot win if you do not submit an application. Each year so many great Chaplains, Brother Knights, Families and Council Activities that could easily win, go unrecognized because council fail to enter. Let’s make this year different. Start early and be sure your council and its members are recognized.

Thank you everyone for all that you do for the good of the order and for your cooperation.

Vivat Jesus!
