We all know that an outstanding leader can really elevate the experience of the Scouts in your Unit. Whether that’s a Den Leader, a Committee Member, a Scoutmaster — these adult volunteers are making that difference with your Scouts.
District M will be recognizing the outstanding adult volunteers at the District Summer Barbeque and Recognition Day! We’ll be gathering as a district at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve, up in Rockford, on Sunday June 12. Share this event information with your Scouting Families so they can start planning and marking their calendars. This will be a fun day outside for all our Scouting Families where we will recognize our amazing Scouting Leaders and Youth.
To recognize the great work, we need your help! Submit your nomination no later than May 23rd for the outstanding volunteer who makes Scouting special for you, for son or daughter, or the unit by nomination those volunteers for one or more of the below awards
Glowing Ember Award
The Glowing Ember Award is selected by the Unit and presented by the District to an individual — a parent and leader who during the past year have given that extra bit of contagious enthusiasm, which is so much a part of a successful pack, troop, or crew.
This is YOUR opportunity to help us recognize those leaders who have made your experience as a Scouter better . . . better because you have been able to witness this person’s devotion to Scouting. Each UNIT COMMITTEE may SELECT ONE INDIVIDUAL (parent or scouter) FROM THEIR UNIT to receive the District’s ‘Glowing Ember Award’ at the Barbeque.Glowing Ember Award
Position Specific Award (Outstanding Cubmaster, Committee Member, etc)
Nominate that outstanding Committee Member, Den Leader, Assistant Scoutmaster — any leader in your unit for a position-specific award! Depending upon the number of ‘position-specific’ nominations we receive for each position, more than one adult leader could be selected for an award. For example, if we only receive two nominations for a position, we might only present one award; but if we receive fifteen nominations for a position, we have the option of presenting multiple awards.
You (as an individual Scouter) may submit more than one nomination for each position.Position Specific Awards
