Rick Hawes, "Stepmother Medallion".

The IAGSDC® Medallion Project was created by Freeman Stamper to provide dancers with a straightforward, attainable goal to provide a sense of achievement in square dancing.

When a dancer has attended 10, 20, or 25 IAGSDC® Conventions (total, not consecutively), they are awarded a medallion in recognition of their support of and commitment to GLBT square dancing.

At each IAGSDC® Convention, there is a Medallion Project table. At the table are a set of books with all attendees' names from all past Conventions. Attendees are asked to find their name, verify their contact and attendance information is correct, and make any needed changes.

When a dancer has reached a medallion level, they’ll be notified by “Stepmother Medallion” - a position currently occupied by Rick Hawes - that they are eligible to receive their medallion.

Medallions are awarded publicly at Convention, during opening ceremonies (25 and 20 Year Medallions) and following the Saturday night banquet (10 Year Medallions). There is usually a special dance tip for all medallion holders after the banquet.

According to Stepmother Medallion, as of the 2007 Convention, a total of 553 Ten Year and 49 Twenty Year Medallions had been handed out so far.
