When I was a district executive, my awards committee and I became concerned
that most awards went to the same group of people year after year: those
who were very active on the district level. While they were deserving of
recognition, deserving people on the unit level were missing out.
So, we contacted each unit leader or committee chair and asked them to
recommend one or two people from the unit who done something special during
the year and recognized these people with a Spark Plug Award.
This plan ensured that every unit had someone recognized and greatly
broadened the group of people receiving awards.
