Awards are given to clubs and state federations to recognize their efforts in the program and partnership areas within each GFWC Community Service Program and Special Program. In addition to the GFWC Community Service Program and Special Program awards, GFWC provides awards to recognize individual member accomplishments, club activities, and community improvement efforts.
State Federation awards are based on membership category, which is determined by the number of individual dues-paying members in each state. Click here to view the 2014-2016 GFWC Awards Categories
