Awards are an important part of the SCA. We are a volunteer organization, and the way we are “paid” is by the positive feeling we get by contributing to the SCA, whether at the local level, in the kitchen, as a kingdom officer, etc. Awards are a public “Thank You” or acknowledgement of accomplishments. (Although they don’t take the place of a personal, individual, word or note – so don’t forget to say “Great Event” to an event steward or send a “Loved your Feast” email to a cook!). Awards are also an encouragement to a person to continue in the same vein or direction. Kingdom and society Awards are given at the pleasure of the Crown of Lochac, and Baronial awards are presented by the Baronage of Ynys Fawr, but the They can’t be everywhere, or see the contributions of every member of the populace. The only way They know if a gentle is worthy is if They receive recommendations for that person, recommendations from people such as you.
