DISTRICT AWARD OF MERIT

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 and also the only "non-square knot" in the know award group.

The award is available to
Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level.

The award is made available annually on the basis of 1 for each 25 traditional units or fraction thereof. The district need not present all the awards to which it is entitled each year.

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.
