The Section offers three awards each year, and nominations are due in March so the awards can be made during our Spring Meeting.

The Governor's Service Award was created to honor Ninety-Nines who exemplify our mission and have provided continuous service to the Ninety-Nines organization.

The Spinning Prop Award recognizes the NCS member who logs the most general aviation hours in a one-year period.  This award was created to encourage and promote more flying by our members.

The 49˝ Award was created to honor those who support the members of the Ninety Nines whether it be actively with the chapter or individually by doing something as simple as letting out the dog and fending for themselves over the weekend while the Ninety Nine is attending a Ninety Nines activity.

Deadline: TBA - March 2016
