Distinguished Service Award
DeMolay International established the Disguised Service Award in fall of 1959. In some jurisdictions, the 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 the recognition. Adult leaders in the community 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.
