When a Council receives a State Program Award in any of the six program categories (Church, Community, Council, Culture of Life, Family, and Youth), the awarded Program is then sent to Supreme for consideration at the International level. International Service Program Awards are presented at the Supreme Knight’s Awards Session which takes place during the Supreme Convention each August.
