National Awards

Membership Awards

  • Actual Growth
  • Factored Growth

The two categories in the contest are known as the Factored Growth (Index) Category started in 1990 and the Actual Growth Category added in 1998. The Factored Growth (Index) Category winner is determined by a formula which equalizes the opportunity of any Region to win for the Factored Growth (Index) Category. The Region with the largest actual growth is the winner of the Actual Growth Category. A region can only win one category in any given year. Should the same Region actually have both the largest actual growth and the highest factored growth (index) they will be declared ineligible for one and only awarded the trophy/prize for the other. If you need additional information on how the two contests work see the Region Procedures Manual or contact the National Membership Committee.
