Bennett Awards recently completed the design and production of new custom awards for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), a research, development, and acquisition agency within the U.S. Depart of Defense. This custom awards design was created for the “MDA Annual Star Award”, which are employee recognition awards that recognize outstanding contributions from MDA employees. Individual employees are nominated for these recognition awards, and then a board determines the overall winner. This year’s recognition award was presented to Dennis Miller, SS, on June 22, 2010, as part of the MDA’s Annual Employee Awards Ceremony.
Bennett Awards created these unique custom awards based on the MDA logo. These unique awards feature a brilliant star image propelling from a base. The body of these custom awards are produced in pewter with a silver-plated finish. These unique awards are supported by custom-milled anodized aluminum bases (shown below). The unique bases feature engraved longitude and latitude lines, along with the name and date of the recognition award, and the name of the award recipient. These custom awards stand 17.5” tall and 12.4” wide.
The MDA’s mission is to develop, test, and field an integrated, layered, ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) to defend the United States, its deployed forces, allies, and friends against all ranges of enemy ballistic missiles in all phases of flights.
