A. PURPOSE & INSTRUCTIONS (CAREFULLLY READ EACH ITEM BELOW)

  • Region, department, and chapter commanders should recognize excellence in their respective organizations each year, e.g., by nominating eligible Companions in good standing to receive a MOWW National Citation.
  • Per the MOWW Policy Manual, "National Citations are approved based on the specific, results-oriented narrative justification accompanying chapter, department, or region commander nominations to recognize excellent achievements by individual, eligible Companions deserving commander praise or respect within their chapter, department, or region of assignment" for service rendered to the same, i.e, within the Order.
  • When developing the specific narrative justification, do NOT list prior military service or membership in other organizations to which the intended eligible Companion recipient belongs unless such mention specifically illustrates how such things directly contributed to the success of specific MOWW, region, department and/or chapter programs. Likewise, do NOT use acronyms. For example, do not write "YLC; insead, write "Youth Leadership Conference."
