ASK shooting star
ASK shooting star is an honorary award given to a person who is relatively new to ASK’s operations and who has strongly promoted ASK’s purpose or made a positive contribution to ASK during the past year. ASK shooting stars can only be awarded to ASK members. The purpose is to reward the efforts the person has made in capacity by a member of ASK’s committee and other positions of trust
