Writing Award Letters
Here's a little excerpt from an article by Barwnes Rhieinwen:
Awards are an important part of the SCA. We are a volunteer organization, and the way we are "paid" is by the positive feeling we get by contributing to the SCA, whether at the local level, in the kitchen, as a Kingdom Officer, etc. Awards are a public thank you or acknowledgement of accomplishments. (They don't take the place of a personal, individual word or noteso don't forget to say "Great event!" to an event steward or send a "Loved your feast" e-mail to a cook!). Awards are also an encouragement to a person to continue in the same vein or direction.
Awards are given at the pleasure of the Crown, but the Crown can't be everywhere or see the contributions of every member of the populace. The only way They know if a gentle is worthy is if They receive recommendations for that personrecommendations from people such as you.
Read the entired article by Barwnes Rhieinwen, with ideas and examples on how to write letters for Award Recommendations.
