You complete a detailed survey of your interests, achievements, general knowledge, and habits. “Dad” Land said it was his dream that every DeMolay should be a Representative DeMolay. The Representative DeMolay program was first established in 1924, and for many years was a competition to select outstanding DeMolays. In 1935, the program was redesigned to fill a growing need for self-evaluation by every DeMolay. Download "Representative Demolay Application" form here.Mail completed Application to:
