Each year, the KY Elks Association honors two outstanding volunteers for their service to veterans. All nominations must be received by the state Veterans Chair no later than January 31, 2019. After that date, the state chair, with the assistance of the judging committee, will select the state winners.
In addition to being recognized at the State Convention, the winners will also be sent on to the national contest. The Elks National Veterans Service Commission will choose one national winner from the state nominees, and that winner will receive formal recognition, as well as a $500 grant to be used for a veterans project of their choosing. The winner will also be invited to the 2019 Elks National Convention in St. Louis, expenses paid courtesy of the ENVSC.
