Turn on the news today and there is always a human interest story of acts of kindness imaginable throughout America. Annually, the Orion District holds their Recognition Banquet (February 4th, 2023) for their most recent Eagle Scouts (of 2022) and the adults who volunteered their time to its youth in the Scouts BSA program, whose life skills are instilled by the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Adult Awards are presented to the Scouts BSA registered volunteers in our communities, those whose acts of kindness has affected the youth of today who will become the adults of tomorrow.

Please go to the Orion District website: orion-bsa.org and make a selection under “NOMINATIONS” at the far right corner for “District Award of Merit Nomination” or “Adult Award Nomination”.

So please …

·         Orion District has many deserving AND OUTSTANDING adult leadership, so it’s Important to submit a nomination. How else will the committee know?

·         The Orion’s Belt District Adult award comes from your unit not the District. This award allows the District to bring distinction to an adult leader in your unit to be recognized outside of your unit by others in the district. EVERY Unit should submit a nomination for this award.

·         If you have nominated someone in the past and they were not selected that year, please nominate them again (previous years nominations are not carried over).

·         Nominee should not be aware of your nomination to avoid any disappointment.
