A new application has recently been added to www.modelaircraft.org with information about new rules and procedures for earning a Club Recognition and Reward grant.
This program was established because the Academy wants to encourage clubs across the country to take part in events and serve the community in ways that will entice community members to learn more about the hobby of model aviation. Becoming a vital part of your community will help your club build your membership and inspire others, including the youth in your community. Clubs that receive media attention can earn up to $300 per year for positive local media coverage for a public event, public service, club announcement, or other coverage.
The program is simple. If your club has received publicity through the local media, simply submit the article, radio segment, or television clip to AMA’s Public Relations department along with the Club Recognition and Reward application. The department will review your application, and reward your club’s treasury based on the coverage received.
