District Award of Merit

The District Award of Merit is awarded by a District to a registered Scouter for service to youth in the District.


Normally, the award is presented for service to youth in excess of five years.  Candidates must be nominated, not self-nominated.

A nominee must have rendered noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside of Scouting, or both.  Consideration will be given to the nominee's Scouting position and the corresponding opportunity to render outstanding service beyond the expectations of that Scouting position.


The nominee's attitude toward and cooperation with the district, division, and/or council will also be taken into consideration.

Nominees Must:

  • be registered Scouters.

  • have given “noteworthy service to youth,” either inside or outside of Scouting—or both.

  • have gone beyond the duties of their volunteer position.

  • maintain a positive attitude and work in cooperation with the district and council.

NOTE: All submissions must be received no later than February 15th.

Honorees will be recognized at the 2024 Leader Recognition Banquet!
