Quarterly State Awards

Merritt Quick of the Hopewell Jaycees holds up his Outstanding New Member of the Quarter Award

The Virginia Jaycees hold 4 state meetings per year.  These meetings offer training, social and programming opportunities to members of the Virginia Jaycees.  All 4 meetings include award presentations during which the Virginia Jaycees recognize the Outstanding achievements by members during the previous quarter.

Nomination forms may be submitted by any member of any chapter. The more complete the form the better, but if the individual completing the nomination does not have all the information requested, that’s OK.

The Executive Board of the Virginia Jaycees reviews the nominations received from chapters and presents awards to those with the most outstanding achievements.

The following awards are presented at each meeting.  Follow the links to get to the nomination forms:

Local President of the Quarter – Award Presented to The Outstanding Local President of the Quarter.  Up to 5 Presidents can be recognized per quarter.

Local Officer of the Quarter– Award presented to the  Outstanding Local Officer in a Chapter who is neither the President nor the State Director of the Chapter.  Up to 5 can be given out each quarter.
