In order to achieve the Star Council Award, a council must earn the Father McGivney, Founder’s, and Columbian Awards. Additionally, the council must submit both the Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity (#1728) and Service Program Personnel Report (#365). In the United States and Canada councils must also be fully compliant with applicable safe environment requirements.
The Father McGivney Award recognizes excellence in your council’s membership growth. To win this award your council must meet or exceed its yearly membership quota. The quota for 2020-2021 is 5% net increase in the council’s membership as of July 1, 2020 (minimum of three and maximum of twenty).
