The District Award of Merit honors Scouters or individuals who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. Each year a district may award up to 1 award for each 25 Scouting units or fraction thereof. The recipient receives the District Award of Merit plaque and can wear the appropriate knot on his or her uniform.
Nomination: A Scouter may not nominate him or herself. The nominee must be a registered leader and have performed noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside Scouting or both. The below form can be used to submit the nomination form electronically. However, if you prefer, you can also print the form and fill it out manually here.
Successful nominations will include additional documentation of the nominee’s background, service to Scouting and to the community, and if desired, letters of recommendations. The complete Nomination packet may be sent to:
770 Woodmont Dr, Marietta, GA 30062 ATTN: Foothills Awards
Packets may also be hand delivered to the advancement committee at the monthly Roundtable meeting.
Deadline for turning in or mailing award nomination is December 31 to allow time for the selection committee to review, select, and notify the recipients. It is recommended that the nominee not be informed of their nomination to avoid disappointment if not selected during the current year.
The award is presented each year at the Foothills District Recognition Banquet. We regret that, due to the large number of nominees each year we are unable to award all who deserve this award. Please update and re-submit nominations in subsequent years so we can honor your nominees as availability permits.
