Annually since 1989, the Naval Order of the United States, in cooperation with the Superintendent of the Academy, sponsors the Coast Guard Academy Junior officer Award to recognize the exceptional personal, professional and academic leadership, and commitment to learning exhibited by a junior officer of the rotating faculty.  The presentation is made at the Academy’s Convocation Ceremony when the entire Corps of Cadets assemble with Academy faculty and staff, guests, and friends to begin the new academic year.  This award is most distinctive because the recipient is chosen by the Corps of Cadets.
