Brethren, I am excited to announce the dates of sessions to participate in Grand Lodge Ritual Excellence Award.
You're not aware of the award, it is a Grand Lodge award given in three tiers: bronze, silver, and gold. You earn it by displaying ritual proficiency and earning points on specified sections of our ritual.
Earned awards are given at our Grand Lodge sessions, which you may proudly display as proof of your labor and skill in learning and performing our beautiful work!
Scores are based on a mixture of word accuracy and the more subtle aspects of performance.
You do not have to be a current or past Lodge officer; any New Hampshire Mason is welcome to participate

which contains the grading criteria as well as the sections eligible to receive points.
There is no expiration on points, and no specific timeline required in which to earn the award.
