    *REMINDER* Golden Key Awards

    The Golden Key Achievement Award program is designed to recognize the great accomplishments in a single school cafeteria. The purpose of the award is to promote benchmarks of excellence across North Carolina and to honor School Nutrition programs that maintain high standards.  Please consider entering your schools so that they may be recognized for the outstanding work they are doing the School Nutrition program.  The awards summaries are due by April 15, 2016.  In addition, School Food Authorities may submit the one best plaque entry for consideration of the state-wide award that is presented for first, second, and third place at the School Nutrition Association of North Carolina annual conference and recognized at the North Carolina School Nutrition Administrator Conference.

    Additional information along with the Golden Key Award Criteria Guide and the Award Summary Form are available on the Awards and Recognition Opportunities page of SN website.
