Re: 2017 Americanism Programs, Legion College, Oratorical, Scholarships and Public Relations Awards.

 

The coloring contest info (http://bcnjal.org/docs/AmericanismPrograms), scholarship (http://bcnjal.org/docs/Scholarships,  and Oratorical Contest (http://bcnjal.org/docs/OratoricalContest) info have been posted for over a month and now I’ve added the following:

 

  1. 2017 Legion College Applications (some courses are two days and others 1 day). It runs from April 28-May 1 at Sea Girt. http://bcnjal.org/docs/LegionCollegeApplications
    1.  Basic, Advanced, Chaplain, Service officer, club management, and Membership for Post members.
    2. Basic and Advanced for Sal members
  2. Americanism: http://bcnjal.org/docs/AmericanismPrograms
  1. Safety Essay and Poster (http://bcnjal.org/docs/AmericanismPrograms
  2. Public Relations http://bcnjal.org/docs/PRandPublicity
    1. Journalism award (individual or paper, etc.)
    2. PR awards (history book, etc.) (There are different dates so be sure to check it out). Also for newsletters you must mail copies to the Chairman when it goes to your members and you must issue at least 3 issues per year.

Because of the different times items are due I will put together a spread sheet listing the award and when it is due and to who.

Any questions please feel free to ping me.

 

Thanks

Bob 

 

PS A few words on Legion College, it is extremely important that anyone aspiring to hold an office at either the post or county level attend at least the basic course and possibly the advanced. It is also important for your SO to go at least every 2-3 years, anyone taking over membership should go and anyone in membership that hasn’t gone in 3-4 years should go.
