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.

To make that occasional “thank you‟ even more special, submit an application for an adult award nomination for the delight in seeing devoted service and devotion to duty being properly recognized.

Please take a few minutes to see if there is someone from your Unit who should be nominated. Please encourage other adult leadership in your unit to nominate deserving scout leaders.

So please …

  • Orion District has a lot of 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.
  • 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.

Assistance, please contact Fran Zaccaria at or (817) 948-1047
