Awards are a recognition granted by the crown at the recommendation of many people who wish to recognize their fellow members for their various achievements and contributions to the S.C.A. Additionally, Baronies can issue  awards at the Baron and Baronesses discretion upon such recommendations. In both cases these serve awards as both recognition and encouragement for your involvement with the S.C.A. Below is a list of some of the more common awards and their significance.
