The District Award of Merit is used to recognize registered Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the District level. York District may issue a limited number of these awards each year based on the number of units in the District. Award recipients are selected by a committee, having been nominated by their peers. This award is signified by an overhand knot emblem (not the typical square knot) sewn above the left pocket.
Nomination forms for the District Award of Merit may be submitted to Chuck Mahaleris at any time in the year. Deadline for this year’s award nominations will be announced at the March 2014 Roundtable.
The Silver Beaver Award is used to recognize Scouters at the Council level. Nomination forms for the Silver Beaver Award may be submitted to Council Advancement Chair Sue Kennedy at any time.
