2017 Scout of the Year Nominations
2017 Scout of the Year nominations are now open! This is a council-level recognition for youth and will be presented at the Council Court of Honor on April 7. The nomination window this year is quite short, so please get your nomination forms in by March 15. Nominations will be accepted from all Scouting programs (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturing, Exploring), and multiple scouts may be selected. To be clear, this is a YOUTH recognition.
Make sure that your unit, the District, and Council get full credit toward Journey To Excellence.
Scouter History Form
We have recently been working on an effort to improve several aspects of advancement within our council. One of the areas of emphasis within this effort has been focused on the following ideas:
- Gain a better understanding of the experience of council Scouters to help support district and council activities.
- Help recognize the efforts of Scouters within the council and show appreciation for their dedication.
- Improve process of nominating and reviewing nominations for district and council awards.
- Avoid presenting awards to individuals who have already been recognized with that award .
To help with this, we have created the Scouter History form.
The complete letter regarding this from Troy Pugh (Council Advancement Chair) is available here.
