Meritorious Award

Meritorious Awards are presented to those individuals who have made a long and outstanding contribution to their community through voluntary service with  their Local Show, Sub Chamber or Chamber.  Usually this award is reserved for those that have already received acknowledgement at the local level and have continued to volunteer and contribute effectively for the community.
