A chapter may recommend any person over the age of 21 years of age for the DeMolay Medal of Appreciation in recognition of outstanding service to DeMolay. The nominee can be a man or a woman and does not need any Masonic affiliation. Nominees may be made at any time. The nomination form must be completed and submitted to DeMolay International by the Chairman of the Advisory Council. The form will then be forwarded onto the Executive Officer for final approval. The chapter is responsible for paying the fee for the medal.
