Register Event Feedback
Due by February Roundtable
Nominate Scouters who have served youth above and beyond the call of duty at the unit and district level for special awards. This is an opportunity to help recognize and thank leaders and volunteers that helped the unit succeed in delivering a great Scouting program. All nominations are confidential. To avoid possible disappointment, do not notify the nominee of this action. Awards are presented to volunteers at the Red Wolf District Awards Reception.
Family of the Year Award
The family is an important part of Scouting. Family support for each youth and adult ensures Scouting success. Parents who volunteer as leaders provide vital support for their children, and the character development of Scouting’s youth make a parent’s job a bit easier and more fulfilling. The Family of the Year Award recognizes a family within the district who has made a significant contribution to their unit, community, and district.
Partners in Scouting Award
Scouts and Scout units rely on the support of community partners to provide a successful program. Community partners consist of businesses, churches, individuals, schools, and service organizations. Community partners contribute facilities, human resources, and financial resources in order to support Scouting. The Partner in Scouting Award recognizes an outstanding entity or individual in the community that generously supports Scouting in the district.
Soaring Eagle District Award
Many Scouters make a significant impact to Scouting, but their service may not be well known throughout the district. Their work is important and directly affects the quality of Scouting at all levels. The Soaring Eagle Award recognizes Scouters who have excelled in service to Scouting. Although consideration for the award is primarily given to a Scouter’s service within a unit, service at the district level is also taken under consideration.
Copperhead District Award
Many Scouters make a significant impact to Scouting, but their service may not be well known throughout the district. Their work is important and directly affects the quality of Scouting at all levels. The Copperhead Award recognizes Scouters who have excelled in service to Scouting. Although consideration for the award is primarily given to a Scouter’s service within a unit, service at the district level is also taken under consideration.
CARES Award (Copperhead only)
The CARES (Copperhead Adult Recognition of Excellence in Scouting) Award recognizes an adult volunteer whose service and support to a unit has made such a difference during 2021, that without them, the unit wouldn't be the same. Often behind the scenes, they are the positive, influential people who support the Scouts and Scouters in times of stress and pressure. Each unit can nominate one adult for every 50 registered youth.
District Award of Merit
The District Award of Merit is a council award presented by districts in the same manner that the Silver Beaver is a national award presented by councils. The award is available to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. The award is made available annually on the basis of one for each 25 traditional units or fraction thereof. The district need not present all the awards to which it is entitled each year. It is not appropriate to nominate a Scouter who has already received this award. A professional Scouter or council employee may not receive this award based on employment service. However, a professional Scouter or employee who also serves as a volunteer Scouter may be eligible, based on volunteer service.
Charter Partner of the Year
The district will honor one chartered partner that has contributed greatly to Scouting. This award promotes strong relationships between chartered organizations and Boy Scouts of America. Awards are presented at the district dinner. Nominees may be religious communities; educational groups; civic, service, or fraternal associations; or business, industry, labor, military, or veterans organizations. Nominees must be currently chartering one or more units in the district. The nominee will display attributes similar to the following:
- Demonstrates outstanding or distinctive relationships beyond the normal expectation.
- Provides noteworthy service to youth, contributing to increased youth participation.
- Cooperates with the district and/or council.
- Involves the institutional head in the selection of quality unit leadership.
- Increases the reputation of Scouting within the community organization.
