One of the greatest attributes of the SCA is its cultural willingness to recognize ability on the tournament field, in the arts & sciences, or in dedicated service to the kingdom by way of each kingdom’s system of Awards.

These awards are given by The Crown and are based on recommendations submitted by the populace. The Crown will usually consult with others as to the accuracy and appropriateness of the recommendation. (Some of the Kingdom awards confer membership in an Order, and some of these Orders are polled by the Crown to see what the consensus is regarding the recommendation. But, anyone can send in an award recommendation for anyone else, and the King and Queen will consider it.)
Clicking the titles below will take you to Trimaris’ Order of Precedence listing for each award.  There you will be able to see the badge associated with each award, as well as a listing of all recipients of that award.

Awards of Arms (AoA)

The most common award given is the Award of Arms. (AoA) It is generally the first award that people receive in the SCA, and can be given for recognition of service, promise in the Arts and Sciences, Fighting, or Archery. The AoA is widely considered to indicate that the individual is involved and active enough in the SCA to be a real asset to the Society, rather than just someone who occasionally shows up at meetings or fighting practice. Receiving an AoA means that the individual is now a Lord or Lady, and should be addressed as such.

In Trimaris, the following awards carry with them, an Award of Arms, if the recipient is not already armigerous.

Grants of Arms (GoA)

The Grant of Arms level of awards is the second tier of recognition for skill and/or accomplishment. Like with the AoA awards, the final decision on all GoA awards is the Crown’s, usually based on recommendations received from the populace and peers. A GoA award indicates an outstanding level of achievement to the kingdom. Any individual who receives a GoA should properly be referred to as Honorable Lord/Honorable Lady [First Name], and addressed Your Lordship/Ladyship.
