The Lewis Award. There is a jewel, that commemorates the support a son lends to his father in later years—The Lewis Jewel. Pictured above, this jewel is designed to be worn by the son of a Master Mason. The criteria to wear the Lewis Jewel is that, at the time of the son’s Initiation, his father was a Master Mason in good standing. Should the Master Mason’s father be deceased at the time of the request, his son will be given permission to wear the jewel provided his father was in good standing at the time of his death.

The application is on the Mass Masons website a copy is available here.  You must fill it out and it must go to your  Lodge Secretary for approval and to process. Application
