Ruby Slippers sparkle - they symbolize the inner spark or passion that the recipient has for RCDA.
The award is given to someone who freely gives of their time and talent to support and further the mission of RCDA within or outside the organization.
The award is given as needed/deserved, no more than once a year (Hoedown or annual meeting) to celebrate someone who meets the criteria in any number of ways. If there is no deserving candidate in any given year, the award is not given. There is NO mandate that the award must be given – even if there are nominations. The committee reserves the right to give or withhold the award each year.
