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.
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.
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 nominating.
Recognition and Notification
Recognition in 2022 will be awarded at the February Roundtable. Upon receipt of a Spirit Award Nomination the candidate will receive a personal invitation from the District Advancement Chair to let them know they will be recognized for their outstanding work within their unit.
