In order to honour the contribution of nations that participate in this initiative and help improve our activity, dynamic and security and to encourage these nations to maintain or improve their contribution, the government of the Coalition of the South Pacific, via this initiative, gives out trophies every month to nations meeting certain criteria. Nations that receive awards will have their names on our award volume dispatch which is published at the start of every month.
The benefits of getting awards
Having your name mentioned on an award volume dispatch will boost your popularity. With more nations knowing you, you will receive more endorsements and make more friends!
You will get the warm fuzzy feeling of helping the South Pacific become a stronger, more active, and more secure region!
You will have something to put in your forum signature and in your nation's dispatches which you can share with pride!
