Here is some excerpted information on them,Donald M. Mackie Awards
The Donald M. Mackie Award was established in 1964 for the best Navy League newsletter to encourage more effective communications between Navy Leaguers. The award is named for Donald M. Mackie, who was instrumental in establishing "Navy - The Magazine of Sea Power," now known as SEAPOWER. A website category was added in 2007. Mackie Awards Instructions.
The Donald M. Mackie Awards, which are given for the previous year's submissions, are presented annually at the NLUS National Convention to the winning councils based upon their respective size. An additional website subcategory for non-Councils was officially added in 2008.
