Our program could not exist without the outstanding volunteers that commit their time and resources to working with the youth in our community. Each year, the district strives to recognize the efforts of these volunteers with two District Awards of Merit. These recognitions are all selected based on nominations received using the District Award of Merit Nomination Form. If you wish to nominate a Scouter for one of these awards, please turn in the nomination form to our district leadership by November 30th.
In addition, each year the council presents a number of Silver Beaver awards to Scouters who provide distinguished service to the council. Nominations can be made using the Silver Beaver Nomination Form and sent to the council office.
Scouter Training Awards
Every Scout deserves a trained leader, and every trained leader deserves recognition. With that in mind, there are several awards to recognize the work put in by our adult volunteers to become trained and effective leaders for our youth.
The trained strip is worn by those leaders who have completed the position specific training for their registered position. For more information on the training required, visit the BSA’s Training for Adults page.
The Den Leader Training Award is to recognize den leaders who have completed training, tenure, and performance requirements. Available for Tiger Cub den leaders, Cub Scout den leaders, and Webelos den leaders. This award can be applied for once the requirements are met by submitting this form to the District Training Chair.
The Scouter’s Training Award is much like the Den Leader version, but can be earned by Unit Leaders, Assistant Unit Leaders, and Committee Members in addition to Den Leaders.
