The period of consideration for nomination is from September 1 to August 31 in any training year. Squadron Commanding Officers should consult with their Squadron Sponsoring Committees, and through their Region Cadet Music Advisor, nominate as many Air Cadets as possible providing they meet the selection criteria detailed below. A Music Award Nomination Form Acc58 shall be submitted for each Cadet nominated to the Chairperson, National Honours and Awards Committee, League Headquarters. The closing date for nominations is 31 October. The Selection Committee consists of members of the National Honours and Awards Committee; they will consult with the appropriate Region Cadet Music Advisor.
