Each year, during the NCS Annual Reuben Awards Weekend, the Society honors the year’s outstanding achievements in all walks of the profession. The recipient of our profession’s highest honor, the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year is chosen by a secret ballot of the members.
The Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded by unanimous vote of the NCS Board of Directors, as is the Silver T-Square, an award that recognizes outstanding service to the Society and the profession.
Prior to 1983, the Reuben Awards Dinner was held in New York, usually at the Plaza Hotel. Since then, the event has expanded into a full weekend and is held in a different city each year.
Special artwork is created for the Reuben Weekends and used on T-Shirts, souvenir tote bags and the Reuben Journal.
