We are now accepting nomination forms for:

District Award of Merit

Who qualifies for the District Award of Merit?

A nominee must be a registered Scouter. A nominee must have rendered noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside Scouting, or both. Note: The nature and value of “noteworthy service to youth” may consist of a single plan or decisions that contributed vitally to the lives of large numbers of youth or it may have been given to a small group over an extended period of time. Consideration must be given to the nominee’s Scouting position and the corresponding opportunity to render outstanding service beyond the expectations of that Scouting position. The nominee’s attitude toward and cooperation with the district and/or council is to betaken into consideration. Nominations cannot be considered for posthumous awards.

Spark Plug Award

Who qualifies for the Spark Plug Award?

The Spark Plug Award is given in recognition to those who have made special contributions to their unit or the Matinecock District. These people provide the Spark that ignites the energy of others for the betterment of Scouting. Please give positions held, specific reasons, and cite examples why this person deserves the award.
