District Awards Recognition
February 9, 2023
The District Awards Recognition event is held during February roundtable and is an opportunity for a night of fellowship and great food as we acknowledge and thank our adult volunteers for the hard work and dedication that made this year incredibly successful. Texas Skies District’s outstanding leaders at the unit and district levels will be recognized. All volunteers in Texas Skies District are invited. Registration is not required for the event. Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at Holy Covenant United Methodist Church (22111 Morton Ranch Rd, Katy, TX 77449).
Due by January 31, 2023
Nominate Scouters who have served Texas Skies District youth above and beyond the call of duty. Awards are presented at the District Awards Recognition event. For questions about nominations, contact the district advancement chair.
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. Each unit may nominate one candidate, regardless of unit size. Units may nominate additional candidates for every 25 Scouts registered. There is no cap on the number of nominations a unit may submit. For example, a unit of 100 Scouts may nominate four (4) candidates: one (1) for the unit itself (regardless of size) or the first 25 Scouts, one (1) for the next 25 Scouts (26-50), one (1) for the next 25 Scouts (51-75) and one (1) for the last 25 Scouts (76-100). Anyone may recommend a Scouter for this award. The unit committee selects the candidate(s) and makes the nominations to the district. All unit nominations will receive an award.
Family of the Year Nomination
The family is an important part of Scouting. Family support for each youth is vital to their success in Scouting. Those parents who volunteer as leaders are a vital support for other kids as well as their own. The extra effort that parents put forth as leaders, in addition to their family responsibilities, deserve to be recognized. But when the whole family is involved in Scouting, they deserve recognition all the more. The Family of the Year award is a way to honor these families by selecting, from those nominated, the family whose work as a team in Scouting has made the greatest difference in our community.
District Award of Merit
The District Award of Merit is a council award presented by the district. The award is available to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. A committee of district peers will review the nominations and select the recipients. Selections for the Rising Star Award will also be chosen from these nominations.
Nominations: For questions about nominations, contact the district advancement chair.
