The Importance of Recognition
We often share a secret with our Scouts: Grateful People are Happy People. Our Scouts and adult volunteers frequently go above and beyond the call of duty, and it is important to recognize this both as a way of saying thank you and as a way of inspiring others to excel likewise.
At each Court of Honor
Also, the district annually recognizes leaders throughout the district for outstanding service. This includes Leaders of the Year awards (e.g. Assistant Scoutmaster of the Year, Committee Member of the Year), District Award of Merit, and others. The district also offers a Spark Plug Award that each unit (Troop, Pack, Crew, etc.) can bestow on an individual (or married couple) within the unit.
It is on this page that we recognize adult volunteers for making activities and events possible, Scouts who perform outstanding service to the Troop or other organizations, and Scouts who demonstrating great Scout Spirit.
Scout Spirit Stick
At the October 2018 Court of Honor, Bennett K. awarded the Scout Spirit Stick to Nathaniel G. for being a very active participant in the Troop and for helping to lead meetings.
