2017 Scouter Award Nominations Open

Each year, the Nashua Valley Council has the opportunity to recognize deserving volunteers for their efforts in delivering the Scouting program to the youth of north-central Massachusetts. Nominations are now open for unit leader awards, the District Award of Merit, and Silver Beaver. 

Unit Leader Position Awards

Do you know an adult or Scout Leader deserving of recognition for their service to Scouting? Someone who perhaps makes a big difference through his or her hard work and dedication to Scouting? If you know of such a special person, let us know! This is your chance to recognize volunteers on the unit level for their hard work in the Scouting program. 

Recognition for the honoree will be made at the District Annual Meeting. Volunteers nominating will be asked to speak about their nominee and their qualifications for the award.
