Community Service Award Guidelines
Community Service Award
(To be submitted to National FCE by State Affiliates. Local groups should apply to their states)
Recognize FCE groups or individual FCE members who through their community service projects are changing the lives of others for the better.
Because of who we are and what we do, we are active in changing the lives around us for the better. Many of the projects that members do deserve recognition, but do not fall under the umbrella of any of the National FCE program awards. This award will encompass and honor those projects.
This is not a project award that carries a monetary reward. The reward comes in helping others.
of the project will be given to one entry from each state. Each state will receive a CERTIFICATE and a set of HEARTH FIRE LESSONS. (The State organizations can recognize any other state entries however they choose.)
Each submission must include a program report book and a brochure. Entry books will be submitted on 8½X11 paper stapled together and will follow the format listed below. Award brochures should include pictures, facts and information about the project that helps you tell your story, and encoruages others to seek more information about the organization.
A copy of the program report book and a brochure need to be mailed, by the State Affiliate, to National FCE Headquarters, 73 Cavalier Blvd Ste 106, Florence KY 41042, postmarked by April 15, of the current year.
