DISTRICT AWARD OF MERIT

The highest award that is given to a Scouter at the District level and also the only "non-square knot" in the knot award group.  The District Award of Merit is awarded by a District to volunteer and professional adults for service to youth in the District.  A person may receive the District Award of Merit more than once from different districts but there are no provisions for wearing more than one.  Career members of the Boy Scouts of America may receive this award upon concurrance of the Council Scout Executive and the Director of Operations at the National office, BSA.

Candidates for this award must be nominated.

The ScoutingBSA.org web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
using our on-line form or send a message to the Webmaster.   Thank you for visiting!
