The Golden Thistle Award was created in 2015 and it's named after the Scottish Thistle Flower and follows the same traditions of honor.
The Golden Thistle Award is to recognize a member for going above and beyond in getting involved with the krewe. This Award is the highest honor given out on a Quarterly basis. Members of the krewe get a chance to nominate another member in the krewe. The nominees are presented to the Board of Directors on a Quarterly basis. The board will determine the winner for the quarter by voting among them. The first month in the new quarter the Krewe President will recognize the recipient with the award at the monthly krewe meeting.
The members can not be on the board and must be an Active Member in the krewe to be nominated. Members can only win this award once.
