In the SCA a kingdom level award is an award which is given by the King and/or Queen of a Kingdom.

They are established by the Kingdom and while they are recognized in other places, they carry an extra cachet in their own home area. Kingdom awards may carry an Award of Arms or a Grant of Arms, making them armigerous. Only the peerages may carry a Patent of Arms, and although they are awarded by the Kingdom's they are recognized Society-wide - they are Society Level Awards.

Each individual Kingdom establishes their own awards, distinct from those of any other group. All follow the traditional SCA model of having three award tracks: martial, service and Arts and Sciences. But each also has special purpose awards for specific activities or qualities.
