Assemblies conducting a minimum of four different patriotic programs during the fraternal year are eligible for the Supreme Council Civic Award.
During the 2010-11 fraternal year, 344 assemblies received the Civic Award. To be eligible, assemblies must complete and submit the Civic Award application to the Supreme Council office by June 30. All assemblies are encouraged to achieve Civic Award status each and every fraternal year.
