District Award Of Merit


District Award of Merit Knot Patch

In 1977 BSA created the Award of Merit honor for exemplary service on the District level. Each District sends nominations each year to Council headquarters for its allotted number of awards. The allotments are based on the number of registered units in the District at the end of the calendar year. Districts are allowed one nominee for each 25 units or fraction thereof.
