To the unsung hero
To the one you can always depend on
To the one who does the work because the work needs to be done – not for any kind of recognition
This award is for you!

The newly initiated Shriner Spotlight Award will be taking the place of the former Shriner of the Month Award program. Similar to the Shriner of the Month Award, the Shriner Spotlight Award honors members who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to both their fraternity and philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children. The nomination process is open to all of our temples and hospitals, and the award will be presented quarterly, instead of monthly. We want to honor the everyday, hardworking, always-there-for-whatever-you-need-him-for Shriner in your temple or hospital. You know who we mean; and we want to hear about him.

Each quarter, one outstanding noble will be chosen for the Shriner Spotlight, with nominations taken throughout the year. To honor these exceptional individuals, each Shriner Spotlight Award recipient will be highlighted in an issue of Shriner Magazine: Pride and Tradition and the annual report, and featured on Shriners Village, the Shriners International website and social media. In addition, the honoree will receive a signed plaque from the Imperial Potentate and a commemorative pin.

Personal displays of leadership, consistent participation in temple activities and efforts, dedication to membership initiatives and/or contributions to the health care system all aid in one’s consideration for the award. In short, we want to honor the “unsung heroes” of Shriners International.
