Outstanding Unit Scouter

Minimize

The origins of the Outstanding Unit Scouter Award come from the old LaCroix District.  Because there were so many leaders at the unit level that were provide such outstanding service to their unit, it was seen very important to recoginize these leaders.  So the LOUSA (LaCroix Outstanding Unit Scouter Award) was born.  In 2000, districts in Indianhead Council were re-aligned and the Eagle Bluff disrict was formed.  The Outstanding Unit Scouter Award was continued.  

Now Eagle River recognizes the same type of unit leaders for there outstanding service to their units.  Each unit (Packs, Troops, and Crews) can nominate one unit leader for this recognition awarded at the annual District Recoginition Dinner.

District Award of Merit

The District Award of Merit is the highest recognition that a district may bestow on its volunteer leaders.  This award has been presented since 1971 when it replaced the Scouter of the Year Award.  Individuals and units may nominate persons who have made outstanding contributions to the youth of their communities through Scouting and other volunteer or professional work.

The selection committee is made up of past recipients, members of the District Committee and District Commissioner Staff, review the nominations.  A district may present one award for each 25 units if there are qualified individuals are nominated.

Corps of Discovery


 

 

The Corps of Discovery is set up to allow Venturing Crews and Ships to recognize their outstanding youth members. Those who have done the most to help the unit grow and develop, and have helped the youth in the discovery of Places, People, Skills, Ideas, and Self are those who should be selected. Each year a unit should hold elections to choose those qualified youth and adult leaders who have done all they can to help the unit improve and move forward.
