The Awards Pamphlet is a supplemental booklet of the MHB

The O.G.R.E.s have an awards system in place to recognize members, associates, and businesses that have done great work within or in assistance to our organization. The awards program is just one more fun and rewarding aspect of membership in or association with the O.G.R.E.s. If a person or company meets the requirements for a given award then a member may use the nomination form or the dedicated forum linked at the bottom of this page to submit them, or by simply clicking here to email the Director of Communications.

About Awards

Nominating

The Nomination process for any award herein is simple and easy. Only the Board of Directors may grant these awards, and the nominator should contact them (via the forum linked at the bottom of this page here on the OgreLair.org Member Wiki, or via information present in the most current edition of the Membership Handbook, under the Contact section) in order to nominate a member or associate for an award. Any active member may nominate any other member or applicable person(s) by sending the Nomination Form, found at the bottom of this page, to the contact electronic mail or postal mail location of the Board of Directors (as seen in the most current edition of the Membership Handbook, under the Contact section), or by going to the Awards Nomination and Discussion Forum. The reward, if granted, will as a default method be sent as a .pdf file format to the nominator, who may then print and/or frame the award for presentation. If a pre-printed and pre-framed award is requested, then the nominator will be requested to send a money order of $15.00 along with the nomination form in order to alleviate the material and return postal costs the O.G.R.E.s will incur. Although the awards presented within this manual can only be granted by approval of the Board, each chapter may also create their own awards system as they wish. The Chapter Coordinator of any such chapter with its own awards program should keep the Director of Communications informed of all awards granted and to whom, for record keeping purposes.

Annual Awards

Some awards within may be marked as Annual Awards, which means that these are granted once a year during the end-of-year Camp Oggie. Any nomination for such an award will be kept on hand until the “winner” of the award is announced at Camp Oggie. Nominations for these awards should be received no later than August 15th of the calendar year to allow for the time it takes to prepare these prestigious awards for presentation at Camp Oggie.

  • If an award is listed as Annual, that means that only one is given out each year.

Reading Award Entries

The awards presented within this manual are all listed in a standard format. The first line will show the actual name of the award, followed by the Citation. The Citation is a brief synopsis of the award which is what the award that is sent will actually state. Below this is the criteria, which lists what the person(s) receiving the award must have accomplished in order to be qualified for nomination of the award. The nominator must provide, in as much detail as possible, the event and/or situation which allows the nominee to meet this criteria.

On some award entries, immediately below the criteria, there may be a line reading “Annual Award.” If this is listed, please see the previous section for information specific to this award.
