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. It is not appropriate to nominate a Scouter who has already received this award. A professional Scouter or other 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.
There are White Oak District Scouters who have given outstanding service to youth in our district and/or our community who you believe should receive the District Award of Merit (DOAM). Now is the time to give them the recognition they richly deserve! Please take the time to nominate that deserving Scouter! The District Award of Merit is a council award presented at the district level to honor those who have given outstanding service at the district level.
