Award List

Each year, MOS presents several trophies at its annual show. Some of the trophies are paid for by endowments (e.g. the Cynthia Guy Memorial Trophy), but most of them are purchased by MOS without any offsetting income. You can help MOS defray this expense by sponsoring a trophy either annually or for a longer period (e.g. 10 years). Annual sponsorship amounts are listed below and all money paid to sponsor a trophy is tax deductible. If you have questions or would like to sponsor a trophy, please contact us or sign up online here.
