Recognition Awards

Toastmasters honors those who have gone above and beyond.




Recognition Awards

As Toastmasters clubs and Districts around the world continue to adapt to the effects the coronavirus is having on in-person events and activities, Toastmasters International is taking note of the overwhelming positive energy and resilience among our leaders. In addition to the existing recognition programs, there will once again be new awards to recognize the tremendous efforts our leaders throughout the organization have put forth. A summary of all additional recognition awards can be found on the “Overview” tab below. Use the tabs to navigate between the dashboard for District-, Division-, and Area-level awards.

Please note that Areas and Divisions will only be reported in tables if there are data for the Area or Division. Monthly awards are finalized for a given month once World Headquarters closes processing for the month. A default ranking will be applied to any award where the results are equal to zero.
