Each year, the Loudoun Laurels’ Founders Committee awards the Loudoun Laurels Medal to the honorees they have selected to become Loudoun Laureates. The medal is worn suspended from a scarlet ribbon, an ancient symbol of courage, passion, strength and self-sacrifice.

 The laurel wreath on the front of the medal embraces the program’s motto, Ductus Exemplo, Leadership by Example.


The reverse displays the coat of arms and family motto of John Campbell, 4th Earl of Loudoun, after whom our county is named.
