Participants must first register in order to begin pursuing The Congressional Award.

The day you register is your “activity start date” or the day you may begin counting activity towards the program. You may not count activities logged prior to your registration.

In order to register for The Congressional Award, you must be a citizen of the United States or reside at a physical address in the United States or its territories. You must also be at least 13 1/2 years of age and not yet had your 24th birthday to register.

The Congressional Award only requires participants to register once and submit a one-time registration fee. Please do not register more than once.

1. Complete the registration form below and click “REGISTER” to submit.

2. Print and sign the waiver. You will also receive an email confirming your registration that contains a link to the waiver.

3. Mail in the completed waiver AND $15 registration fee (check or money order made payable to The Congressional Award) to the address below.

You may NOT submit your registration fee online via Network for Good. This is a donation service only.

Participant Registration

Stop! Have you previously registered?
Participants only need to submit one registration for the entirety of their participation in the program. Submitting a duplicate registration will skew your membership record. If you have already registered for the program, please do not complete this registration form. If you have questions about your registration status please contact us at information@congressionalaward.org.

Please note that we do not sell or otherwise make available personally identifiable information to any person or organization. For more information, please read our Privacy Policy.


Printable Registration Form

We encourage every participant to register online as it is processed automatically. Please note that hard copy registrations take longer for our team to process, resulting in delays in the delivery of your registration packet.

If for whatever reason you cannot complete the online registration, mail the printable registration form with your $15 registration fee to our mailing address.
