Honoring Veterans Contest 2014

Honoring-Veterans-Contest

Whether it’s called Remembrance Day or Veterans Day where you live, November 11 is a day set aside in Canada and the U.S. to remember and honor those who have proudly served their countries in the armed services.

In recognition of those national observations and the individuals they honor, Amway sponsored the 3rd Annual Honoring Veterans Contest. U.S. and Canadian IBOs were invited to share how they actively support, serve, or honor military veterans.

An independent judging panel reviewed all the stories submitted and selected winners with the greatest:

  • Emotional appeal
  • Scope of impact
  • Level of service

Awards of $500 were made to the organizations featured in the stories to further the work they’re doing.

Please join us in celebrating the wonderful work of these individuals and their organizations, and reflecting on the importance of the outstanding servicemen and –women we honor each year.
