District 16 Texas Star Award

The Texas Star Awards were established in 1995. They honor those Unit volunteers who work so steadfastly at the Unit level to promote Bridge and to further Unit activities. Selection is made by the Unit Board of each Unit and the awards are traditionally presented during the February Lone Star Regional.

Much like the Oswald and Jim Jacoby Service Award, the Texas Star Awards are meant to go to worthy volunteers. Unlike the Jacoby Award, they go to unit-level workers for service performed in their own units. The decision on who is to get the award in a particular unit is left to the Board of Directors of that Unit. The Unit Board then merely informs the Texas Star Award Committee of the decision.

Guidelines for the Texas Star Award are posted here.
