Mary Ann Berdan Nomination Form
MARY ANN BERDAN Award Certificate
The Mary Ann Berdan Award is given to teams and individuals who show creativity above and beyond expectations and demonstrate exceptional team work. Every meet can have many Mary Ann Berdan Award winners even if there is only one winning team each meet, so encourage your facilitators to keep their eyes open for these qualities during every competition!

Very occasionally a host may need to report about problems with behavior or following the rules (usually inadvertant transgressions) in order to assess penalties. The Program Manual details the penalties for different kinds of infractions, or you can find a table of suggested penalties here.
