Recognition Awards

Toastmasters honors those who have gone above and beyond.




Recognition Awards

There is cause for celebration! As Toastmasters clubs around the world adapt to the effects the coronavirus crisis is having on in-person events and meetings, Toastmasters International is taking note of the overwhelming positive energy and resiliency. With year-end approaching, the Board of Directors created new awards at the club, Area, Division, and District levels for the 2019–2020 program year only, in addition to the existing Distinguished Club Program and District Recognition Program. They were designed with the same enthusiasm so many Toastmasters displayed to earn them.



Clubs will qualify for these awards by meeting both of the following criteria by June 30, 2020:
  • Indicating in Club Central that they allow online attendance
    • The club must have allowed online attendance between January 1 and June 30, 2020. If the club already allowed online attendance prior to January 1, 2020 and continued to allow online attendance, it would qualify. If the club did not allow online attendance prior to January 1, 2020 and began allowing online attendance, it would qualify. Clubs that have never allowed online attendance at any point between January 1 and June 30, 2020, would not qualify.
  • Achieving the listed education goal requirement in one of two tiers
    • The first tier/silver award will be presented to those that achieve four education goals (traditional, Pathways, or a combination), based on the DCP.
    • The second tier/gold award will be presented to those that achieve six education goals (traditional, Pathways, or a combination), based on the DCP.
