Traveling Recognition Award

The Traveling Recognition Award is an award sponsored by the Columbia NRHH that recognizes the contributions of a specific residential community (hall or sub-area) towards the NRHH's mission of building a culture of appreciation within the Columbia community at large.

Every month, the Traveling Recognition Award moves to a different community based on the following formula:

  • Every OTM nomination for the given month associated with a community increases the point score for that community by 1 point.
  • Every OTM winner for the given month associated with the community increases that community's point score by an additional 5 points.
  • The total point score is then divided by the number of residents within the community. The community with the highest "weighted score" wins the Traveling Recognition Award for a given month.
