The Oklahoma Standard Award is presented by the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum to an individual that, through their personal and/or professional endeavors, exemplifies the Oklahoma Standard through Acts of Service, Honor, and Kindness.
This year, we are partnering with the State Chamber of Oklahoma to find and honor individuals who go above and beyond in their communities. Local chambers from all-across the state will choose an individual to honor locally with an Oklahoma Standard Award at their annual awards banquet.
Winners must, through their Acts of Service, Honor, and Kindness, be shining examples of the Oklahoma Standard in their personal and/or professional endeavors. They are the unsung heroes of their community. They should also be a living person, reside in Oklahoma, and attend the award banquets, both local and state.
To receive the award, Chambers must submit the below form. Once submitted, the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum will mail the award.
In the fall, we will review all the local winners and select one as the state-wide Oklahoma Standard Award winner, to be honored in Oklahoma City at our annual luncheon. All of the local winners will be displayed in the Memorial Museum along with the state recipient.
“The importance of the Oklahoma Standard needs to spread across our state just like it did in 1995. We Oklahomans are known for our neighborly service to each other, and that must continue to be celebrated and taught as we move forward,” said Kari Watkins, Executive Director. “This gives us a chance to recognize great people from Hollis to Miami and from Guymon to Idabel.”
