The awards are presented at an impressive ceremony, this year Saturday evening April 29th at the Council Annual Convention in Helena. This year Cory Keith, longtime Council board member and officer, will serve as chair of the selection committee.
There are deserving Scouters in all districts and all parts of the Council. In ordered to be considered each candidate must be nominated by a fellow Scouter or Scouters. The deadline for nominations is February 28th. You may access a nomination form here. With our large territory in Montana Council the nomination form is especially important. Care should be taken to be thorough in completing the nomination form. Letters of recommendation may accompany the nomination. District committees are encouraged to review your current district committee members and longtime unit leaders for potential nominees. If someone has been nominated in the past, but did not receive the award, complete a new updated nomination for this year. Don’t be discouraged if your nominee does not get selected – there are always more nominations than awards to be presented.
Nominations may be submitted via email to Michelle.Ferguson@Scouting.org or mailed to the Council Service Center in Great Falls. Now is the time to start gathering the data for nominations for dedicated, worthy candidates – February 28th will be here soon. Don’t delay!
