Spirit Award Nomination

The Spirit Award is presented to one or more Scouters in each unit who has made a significant impact in the lives of youth in the unit and/or district. Spirit Award nominees do not have to be registered Scouters. 

Units may select one candidate per year for every 50 Scouts registered with the BSA. (i.e., 1 – 50 Scouts = one nomination, 51 Scouts = two nominations).  Anyone may recommend a Scouter for the award. The unit committee selects the candidate(s) based on their knowledge of the candidate’s contributions, personal qualities, etc.


A fee of $10.00 per award to cover the cost of the award and certificate. One person from the unit should pay the fee when registering for the district dinner.
