The Star Council award is the most coveted recognition that a Council can earn. It recognizes a council's overall excellence in the areas of membership recruitment and retention, promotion of the fraternal insurance program, and sponsorship of service programs in the areas of church, community, council, family, culture of life, and youth activities. Of the 60 councils in Arkansas, only 14 achieved the Star Council award last fraternal year.
