People in the SCA often love to get awards. People love to give awards. What people often forget is that the people handing out the awards aren't omniscient - if you think that someone is deserving of recognition, you need to let the appropriate person know.
When recommending an individual for an award to the local Baron/Baroness, Prince/Princess or King/Queen, you should include the following:
- Both their SCA name and mundane name. (if they are fairly new, this is a great chance to find out how they would like to be called).
- State why you think the person deserves recognition - it might be work, achievement or service. Try to be specific - places, times and events help.
- Suggest an appropriate award. (If you don't know the names of the awards, please still send your recomendation)
