Golden Candy Cane Awards

About the Awards

Golden Candy Cane Awards

Established in 2020 as a memorial to Jaster "Candy Cane" Winterboune, the "Golden Candy Cane" awards are issued very liberally to those elves (and humans) who have conducted themselves above and beyond their "normal" daily achievements. All inductees must be submitted to the Department of Elfland Security's Office of Elf Affairs to be reviewed for the determination of the award. This award can be issued multiple times during the year and an individual can receive the award more than once in a given year.

Submitting a Potential Candidate

Submissions can be made at anytime by submitting the candidate information through the department's Contact Us page. Please send the submission to "The Department of Elfland Security" and include the candidate's name and why they should be considered for the award. A "secret" committee will meet and review the information and vote on if the candidate should receive the award.

2020 "Twinkle" McJingles Hinklemyer Twinkle McJingle was responsible for organizing a group of elfves to go to the lower 48 in person and provide some instructional videos on how kids can make crafts at home with orginary household items. During the COVID lock down it was difficult for kids to get out for holiday events and this oppportunity brought Chrstimas to them virtually. The program was such a success that it has been decided to continue on each year.

She then later on, brought dinner over to the families house. Crystal is a worker at the syrup factory and went almost 64 hours without sleep. The family submitted her name for consideration.
