The Jersey Devil Award recognizes the State Society that has brought the greatest number of attendees the farthest distance. It is presented annually at the Atlantic Middle States Conference by the Vice President General presiding at the banquet. The trophy is in the shape of a legendary creature that haunts the pinelands and swamps of southern New Jersey – an apt image for those hardy SAR compatriots who must show up unexpectedly far from home to win the award. The original award plaque was carved by Frank Kinammon (Delaware Society SAR), who was Secretary General of the NSSAR for 1977 – 1978. The award was first presented in 1980.
