2018 Silver Comet District Conductor Award Nominations

Posted on Jan 26 2019 - 3:09pm

The Silver Comet District Conductor Award is for any adult in your unit that you feel deserves recognition for service to scouting that goes “above and beyond”. They might be the assistant Leader that is always there when help is needed, the Committee Member that somehow keeps the accounts straight, or maybe that parent that keeps everything organized and moving forward. They do not have to be a registered Scouter to be nominated for this award. The Conductor Awards are announced at our District Banquet, which will be held on March 14th, 2019 at the Atlanta Area Council Volunteer Service Center.
