Call for Superior Scouter Nominations

Do you know of a deserving Scouter who deserves recognition for their service to their unit or the Colonial District?

The Superior Scouter Award recognizes outstanding service within Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity Scout teams, Venturing crews, and Explorer posts in the district.  Units may nominate an individual who has provided outstanding service to the unit depending on the number of registered youth members of the unit.  (A unit with 50 or fewer registered youth members may nominate one individual; a unit with between 51 and 100 youth members may nominate up to two individuals and a unit with 101 or more youth members may nominate up to three individuals.)  The unit committee defines the reasons it believes each nominee should be given this award; however, each Scouter nominated must be fully trained for the position in which they are registered.
