District Awards and Recognition

Everyone deserves a "Thank you" for a job well done!

Each district finishes up their Scouting year by identifying volunteers who have shown exemplary service to their units and the district. This recognition reflects the achievements and commitment of these volunteers to Scouting and the youth of their communities. Units as a whole are also recognized for outstanding effort!

Your help is needed! Do you know a Scouter or unit in your district who might be deserving of one of these awards? Please let us know below!
