District Award of Merit


 

The District Award of Merit honors Scouters 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. This interactive form can be printed and used as the cover for the nomination packet. Successful nominations will include additional documentation of the nominee's background, service to Scouting and to the community, and if desired, letters of recommendation.  Complete instructions for submitting nominations are published each year in the district newsletter beginning in October or November.

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.
