STARFLEET and REGION ONE AWARDS
Both Starfleet and Region One have an annual awards program. The Starfleet awards are given out at the International Conference each year during the summer or Fall. The Region One awards are given out at the R/1 Summit in the Spring. Both have numerous awards, such as Officer of the Year, Ship of the Year, Department Chief of the Year, etc. Members of the JURASSIC are regularly nominated by the CO and XO for these awards.
The USS JURASSIC as a ship and as individuals have won the following awards:
Starfleet's Ship of the Year 1996
Starfleet's Officer of the Year Gary Donner 1996
NOTE: Awards are given out during one year for the work done during the previous year. In other words the 1999 awards were given out during the 2000 conference and Summit.
We have also won several unit Distinguished Service Awards from Region One for our charity work. Plus several of our members have won individual DSA's and annual department awards from Region One. In addition to these the ship has won several SF Awards and several Amateur Radio Awards.
[NOTE: Members of the USS JURASSIC may also claim 5 points on their next promotion report sheet for receiving these awards.]
USS JURASSIC AWARDS
The USS Jurassic offers the following awards to people deserving of recognition on our ship. Unless the award has a specific month listed, it can be given at any time. If you know of someone on the ship who is deserving of one of these awards, please make a recommendation in writing to the Commanding Officer or First Officer at any time. You don't have to write a lot. Just tell us who, the name of the award, and briefly why you think this person deserves the award. Any person receiving a USS JURASSIC award can automatically claim 5 points on their next promotion points sheet for receiving the award. Just write the name of the award you received and the date you received it on the points sheet. Then add 5 points in the "points" column. Even though a particular award states that it is given out during a specific month, that award will only be given if there is someone who deserves it.
