Do you have a NAWGJ member who is an unsung hero or has made unique contributions to our organization, promotes professionalism, or demonstrates leadership that you would like to recognize? She/he could be a candidate for the Green Flag Award. This award may be given at the state and regional level annually and at the national level every four years. (This award need not be given every year.)

If there are nominees at the state level, they will be sent to the SJD. The SGB will choose one recipient from their membership. The SJD will forward their recipient to the RJD. The RGB will choose a regional recipient. Regional recipients will be forwarded to the NGB. A national recipient will be chosen the year of the National Symposium from the pool of all regional recipients from the previous four years.
