I Was Caught Being Excellent

Person/Community of the Month



Award Description
White Bison is very appreciative of the many individuals and communities who have continuously shown their dedication to the Wellbriety Movement. As a result, White Bison is beginning an ‘I was Caught Being Excellent’ program, to recognize and award at least one individual and one community each month. These individuals and communities have served the Wellbriety Movement in an exceptional manner and are ‘Unsung Heroes’ for White Bison.
The recipients, and their efforts, will be acknowledged on White Bison’s website, Facebook page and monthly newsletter, and will receive a letter and certificate of appreciation. The Person of the Month recipient will also receive an ‘I Was Caught Being Excellent’ button. In addition, the Person of the Month recipient will receive 25 ‘I Was Caught Being Excellent’ Buttons and 25 Blank Certificates for them to distribute to others in their community that they ‘catch being excellent’ and are also strong supporters of the Wellbriety Movement. The Community of the Month recipient will receive a personalized Wellbriety flag to display.
