SAF/Formation NSmen of the Year Awards
Since 1994, 2 categories of awards for outstanding Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) have been presented annually. These are the SAF NSmen of the Year and the Formation NSmen of the Year Awards.
The SAF NSmen of the Year Award winners comprises Officers, Warrant Officers and Specialists from the Army, Navy and Air Force. These awards are presented to NSmen who have demonstrated excellent performance, and consistently set exemplary standards in training, discipline, and attitude towards NS.

The SAF NSmen of the Year Award winners are recognised on a national level, and presented annually in July as part of the SAF Day celebration. The Formation NSmen of the Year Award is presented annually in August/September by the respective formations.
