Family of the Year Award

Family support for each youth and adult ensures Scouting success.  Parents who volunteer as leaders provide vital support for their children, and the character development of Scouting’s youth make a parent’s job a bit easier and more fulfilling. The Family of the Year Award recognizes a family within the district who has made a significant contribution to their unit, community, and district.

Soaring Eagle Award

District Award of Merit 

District Award of Merit The District Award of Merit is a council award presented by districts in the same manner that the Silver Beaver is a national award presented by councils. The award is available to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. The award is made available annually on the basis of one for each 25 traditional units or fraction thereof. The district need not present all the awards to which it is entitled each year. It is not appropriate to nominate a Scouter who has already received this award. A professional Scouter or council employee may not receive this award based on employment service. However, a professional Scouter or employee who also serves as a volunteer Scouter may be eligible, based on volunteer service.
