Each year, the NSDKC awards ceremony is conducted during the Annual Holiday Brunch which this year will be December 7 at the Indian Hills Country Club.
Our awardees are selected by the Awards Committee from nominations submitted by NSDKC members.
The nomination form is on our website. Nominations are due by November 1.
Our three award categories are:
- Lee I. Pickering Award of Excellence. This award recognizes a member in good standing for five consecutive years that has demonstrated excellence in performance of his or her duties, commitment to a project, extraordinary detail and quality in the delivery of the project, information required to complete the project, and assisted and mentored others in the completion of the project.
- George E. Hicks Award for Perseverance. This award recognizes a member in good standing for five consecutive years that has demonstrated unshakeable commitment to a long term project when all others have given up. They are able to bear the difficulties calmly and without complaint. They demonstrate hard work, patience and endurance. They try again and again until the project is completed.
- Special Recognition Award. This award recognizes an individual that has provided outstanding commitment, leadership, coordination or resources to further the mission of the organization which is dedicated to the recognition, preservation and restoration of greater Kansas City’s unique heritage.
