Each year, MOS presents several trophies at its annual show. Some of the trophies are paid for by endowments (e.g. the Cynthia Guy Memorial Trophy), but most of them are purchased by MOS without any offsetting income. You can help MOS defray this expense by sponsoring a trophy either annually or for a longer period (e.g. 10 years). Annual sponsorship amounts are listed below, and all money paid to sponsor a trophy is tax deductible (please contact us for a charitable donations receipt or if any questions).  To sponsor a trophy, pledge here if you want to pay cash/check in person or here to pay by credit card.  Thank you!
