Grand River District Awards Nominations

Grand River has recognition and awards (Swackhammer Award, Outstanding Scouter, Honor Roll and the District Award of Merit) for volunteers providing noteworthy service in their volunteer assignment, regardless of tenure. Submit a nomination every year for the candidate to be considered for that year. Recognitions are for the volunteer who has made noteworthy accomplishments or outstanding service to Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting or Venturing in the Grand River District in 2017. The recognition is not intended to be a substitute for the 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. 

District Award of Merit requirements are:

1. A nominee must be a registered Scouter. 

2. A nominee must have rendered noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside Scouting, or both. 

3. Consideration must be given to the nominee’s Scouting position and the corresponding opportunity to render outstanding service beyond the expectations of that Scouting position. 

4. The nominee’s attitude toward and cooperation with the district and/or council is to be taken into consideration. 

5. Nominations cannot be considered for posthumous awards.

Additionally, 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. 

Please complete the nomination form and forward to Janet Jury.
