The award period is being changed to a Calander year. This period will end December 15, 2024. This is the date the Americanism criteria report is due to the chairman of the Committee on Americanism.

The committee on Americanism will make a recommendation to the SGIG and the award will be given as soon as practical at the end of the calendar year.
