The Maddy Awards


On Friday night, May 17th, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, our third annual MADDY Awards will be given out to outstanding individuals and agencies for excellence in areas of DUI/BUI enforcement, underage drinking prevention, and other contributions to MADD's mission. Thank you for nominating someone to receive this honor! Nominations are due by April 5th, 2024. All nominees will be invited to attend the recognition dinner and will be recognized. (One invitation for individual nominees; two for group nominees). Those awarded a MADDY will receive a trophy at the event. Nominees will be contacted with information on how to RSVP for the dinner. Some scholarships will be available to cover the hotel room cost if an agency is unable to send someone for that reason. Training for law enforcement will be offered on Friday, May 17th. More details to follow.

This event is made possible through the generous support of the Cauthen Donor Advised Fund.

We’d love the whole family to be there to see their hero take home a MADDY!  All nominees will be recognized and receive an award at the dinner.  Just being nominated is an honor so please nominate anyone you think deserves the recognition, not just if you think they will win.


We will keep you up to date once the trainings have been decided on.


Thanks to generous supporters, MADD wants to help ensure that all nominees can attend, even if their agency cannot afford to send them. For more information on obtaining a scholarship to cover the cost of the May 17th hotel room, please email us at sc.state@madd.org
