Eagle Scout Service Award

This award recognizes an Eagle Scout age 18 through 25 who are not just registered with a Unit, but whom are active on a regular basis leading their Units with noteworthy service. Not often do Eagle Scouts continue on with Scouting after high school. College, employment, and other interests soon take up their time. Fortunately however, some do have that desire to continue on as an Adult Scout Leader. It’s a magical force that compels them to follow the Eagle Scout Charge – “to give back to Scouting what Scouting gave to them”. Any information submitted for this candidate must be after the person has turned 18. The selection committee will use no information prior to his 18th birthday.

Additional Requirements:

 

Hou Koda Guiding Light

Every pack, troop, team, and crew can choose one volunteer that most exemplifies Scouting spirit in their actions and in their commitment to Scouting. Each unit determines their own guidelines for their unit. Please only submit one per unit.
