Hall of Leadership Honorees

The Minnesota Jaycees Charitable Foundation Hall of Leadership Award is a prestigious award that recognizes former Jaycees over the age of 40.

Think about past Jaycees from your chapter who have taken their knowledge and leadership skills and continued to work within your community.

The deadline for nominations is April 15.

Founded in 1980, the Statesman organization is an honors program that enables a local chapter to recognize the outstanding efforts of a Jaycee for extraordinary dedication to the organization. Dedication and service are two of the most important criteria for this award. This is the highest award bestowed by the Minnesota Jaycees. For more information about submitting a Statesman visit the MN Statesman website to contact them directly.



Since 1976, Junior Chamber chapters in every state have recognized their finest members by presenting them with the prestigious Ambassador honor. This life-long honor recognizes those who have served The United States Junior Chamber and their community with highest distinction and greatest contribution.
Thank that special individual for their outstanding service, involvement, and commitment by nominating them as an Ambassador — the highest honor bestowed on a Jaycee in the United States.




In order for a Junior Chamber member to be considered for the honor, several guidelines have been established as far as a candidate’s qualifications. Aside from displaying a record of outstanding service and involvement, an Ambassador must have been a four-year member in good standing; have served one year on the local Junior Chamber Board of Directors or have served one year on the state Executive Committee. The official application must be submitted to explain the extent of the nominee’s Junior Chamber involvement (activities, awards, offices, length of affiliation, etc.) as well as community involvement outside the Junior Chamber organization. Both local and state Junior Chamber Presidents must sign the completed application. (If the Ambassador nominee happens to be the current Junior Chamber President, the next senior Junior Chamber officer may sign the application.)




Participation in the Ambassador Honor program requires that the sponsoring local or state organization contribute $150 per honoree to The United States Junior Chamber. This one-time charge includes an Ambassador pin, numbered certificate, membership card, and administrative costs. On a broader scale, Ambassador Honor Program fees provide for funding of The U.S. Junior Chamber programs and the development of new personal growth programs.

JCI Senator

The JCI Senate was formed in 1952 and honors members and past members with a JCI Senatorship, which is the highest individual honor that a Jaycee can receive in the WORLD. Receiving a JCI Senatorship is a distinct honor by which to recognize achievements of outstanding members, while also enabling them to retain contact with the organization for life. This recognition comes as a result of many years of dedication, commitment and service to the organization. It is the highest honor one can receive from Junior Chamber International.
