    Congratulations to Santa Clara University in 8th Brigade for winning both FY 2009 and now FY 2011. I guess Berkeley and UCLA better step it up :shake:

    Other then Santa Clara University, the winners sure seem to change every year. It would be interesting to know how they rank the schools for this award. Is it based on number of cadets receiving AD, Highest average OML scores, Meeting contracting and commissioning goals, or a mix of all plus other factors.

    I hope it's not how they picked the best Company back in my day, The best poker hand won.

    Nice job Santa Clara, top honors and sunny weather to boot.

    I believe that before FY 2008, the Awards were based on Battalion size.

    Award is not currently based on Battalion size. If it was, Penn State would win the 2nd BDE award every year.

    Actually what I meant to say is that the awards weren't by Brigage, but National and in three size categories... just can't remember what year it switched to 8 brigade awards.
