As in other years awards criteria has been posted throughout the ship for cadets to see and review. The recipient of each award has been selected by members of an awards committee.
Our Phase 1 award is the first of five phases in the Sea Cadet program. In this phase, cadets learn the basic fundamentals of teamwork, seamanship, naval history, drill and community citizenship. The Ernest Hine Family memorial award for the best phase 1 cadet is presented annually to the cadet that has demonstrated the best attitude and academic ability while participating in the phase 1 training. Presented by CO Lt(N) Wisniewski to AC Dawson Muir
In phase 2, cadets build upon the foundation they learned in phase 1. More complex seamanship skills are taught. Such as semaphore, bows calls, and blocks and tackles. Drill with arms is introduced and the focus begins to transition from a member of a team to taking on more of a leadership role. The Wrenshall shield for best phase 2 cadet is awarded annually to the cadet who has displayed the best attitude and academic ability while participating in phase 2 training.

Instruction and leadership continue to be the primary focus in the phase 4 training program. Cadets are required to instruct a minimum of two classes and demonstrate advanced leadership skills in order to be successful in this training year. In addition to these cadets continue to build on their seamanship skills by learning a fancy rapport and the basics of navigation. The Ernest Hine Family Memorial award for best phase 4 cadet is presented annually to the cadet that has demonstrated the best attitued and academic ability while participating in phase 4 training.

In phase 5, cadets spend minimal time in formal classroom training. The emphasis in this phase is to provide cadets with on the job experience to develop their skills in a variety of areas. All cadets in this phase are assigned to departments and when they are not instructing classes to the other phases, they devote their time and energy to departmental duties. The 85th Anniversary trophy for best phase 5 cadet was donated by Stormy's car sales in Belleville and is presented annually to the cadet who displays the best overall attitude and academic ability while participating in phase 5 training.
