The Gipper Award
|The Gipper Award is given each year at the Annual Convention to an outstanding NHYR who has worked hard to spread the Republican message and has encourage other YR's to get involved. The recipient of the Gipper award demonstrates that same qualities of Republicanism and party loyalty that the late President Reagan embodied.
The recipient of this award is selected by the NHYR Executive Committee which solicits nominations from the general members (Any Republican ages 18 to 40). In some years, two recipients, a male and a female, have been chosen.
|In appreciation of the honorees service to the NHYR organization and to the party as a whole, each winner has his or her name added to the base of a bust of the Gipper himself. The bust of President Reagan is displayed at the New Hampshire Republican State Committee office in Concord.
The bust was generously donated to the NH Young Republicans by Steve Duprey, former New Hampshire Young Republican State Committee Chairman and former chair of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.
Gipper Award winners are also given plaque worthy of display in their homes or office that describes the qualification necessary to receive such an award: "For outstanding effort in promoting New Hampshire's youth in the political process and the Republican cause."
