The Outstanding College Council Award


The Supreme Council annually awards the prestigious Outstanding College Council Award to the college council that best exemplifies the mission and ideals of the Order and has, in a unique way, gone above and beyond to make a difference on campus and in the surrounding community. The winning council receives a trophy, a $500 check for the council treasury, and coverage through various Knights of Columbus media outlets.

Each college council should annually complete the Outstanding College Council Award Application as this award not only determines the winner of the Outstanding College Council Award but also the best programs in each of the six service categories (Church, Community, Council, Family, Culture of Life, and Youth). Completed applications should be sent to college@kofc.org with the Council # and name of the school included in the e-mail subject line (i.e. Notre Dame Council 1477). The application is due at the close of the fraternal year on June 30.

Any questions regarding the completion of the Outstanding College Council Award Application or any of the awards given by the College Councils Division should be directed to college@kofc.org or 203.752.4671.

List of Past Winners

The Outstanding College Council Award has been awarded since the 1969-1970 fraternal year. Councils originally submitted council scrapbooks to be judged but the process moved to a paper application in the 1990s. St. Anselm Council 4875 has won the Outstanding College Council Award a record eight times, most recently in 1999-2000.
