The Missouri Congressional Awards Council was established in June of 1994 by then US Senator John Danforth. Over the years the all-volunteer council has served the youth of Missouri by not only fostering participation in the Congressional Award program, but also by conducting an annual state-wide ceremony for bronze and silver medal recipients.
Working with national partnersing organizations, Character Plus, the St Louis Irish Arts, Boy Scouts of America, Girls Scouts of the USA and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, participation among youth in the state has grown tremendously. In 2008, the council was proud to watch the Honorable Ike Skelton present a record 29 awards at its ceremony at the Missouri Governors Mansion.
If you or your organizaton would like more information on the award, please don't hesitate to contact any one of our board members. We look forward to working with you for the betterment of America's youth.
President, Missouri Congressional Award Council
