I've been looking off and on for a few days and have had no luck so I'll ask here.

I know I've seen something that outlines what types of cadets the AFA/AFSA/VFW awards are targeted at.  I can't find it now though.

Anybody know what I'm talking about or am I taking crazy pills?

Neither of those cover what I'm looking for, and don't even mention these specific awards. 

What I'm remembering was something about the AFA being geared towards first-year cadets, etc.

100% subjective as far as I know.

If anything geared more towards officers with AFSA towards younger cadets.

Everything has an edge case, but a unit where the "most outstanding cadet" isn't an NCO
seems like it has additional issues

Try CAPR 39-3
AFA - Section 42.
AFSA - Section 43.
VFW - Section 44A for NCO, 44B for officer

Eclipse - NCOs are not automatically the most outstanding cadets.

No one said they were.

Looks like it to me...

And I stand by what I actually said, however perhaps adding "at least an NCO" would clarify.
