The Quebec Thistle Committee sponsors a series of awards which are presented annually to individuals deemed to have made a significant contribution to the advancement of Scottish tradition and culture in Quebec. The public at large, as well as member organizations of the Quebec Thistle Committee, are invited to nominate individuals as candidates for designated awards.
The awards are divided into four categories and consist of a series of plaques, trophies, medals or certificates which are presented annually to and retained by the winners. The Quebec Thistle Committee reserves the right to refuse any nomination or suspend the presentation of an award in any category. All such decisions are final.
In categories where a panel of judges determines the recipient of an award, the members of such a panel shall be individuals who are recognized for their expertise in the award category. Such panels are appointed by the Quebec Thistle Committee’s Board of Directors. Each panel shall consist of not less than three persons and not more than five.
