In the SCA a principality level award is an award which is given by the Landed Prince and/or Princess of a Principality.

They are established by the Principality and while they are recognized in other places, they carry an extra cachet in their own home area. Principality awards may carry an Award of Arms, making them armigerous, but they may not carry a Grant of Arms nor a Patent of Arms.

Each individual Principality establishes their own awards, distinct from those of any other group. Many, but not all, follow the traditional SCA model of having three award tracks: martial, service and Arts and Sciences. Many also have special purpose local awards focussing on some activity that is particularly prominent in the area.

When and if a Principality goes Kingdom, they usually turn their Principality awards into Kingdom Level Awards.
