District Award Nomination Instructions
The Crosswinds District Recognition Event will be held on Thursday December 1, 2016 at the Cary Church of Latter-day Saints at 1811 Seabrook Ave, Cary, NC 27511. A reception with light refreshments will begin at 6:30 pm and the program will begin at 7 pm.
The district scouts and scouters always enjoy this annual event and I look forward to the opportunity to highlight their achievements.
In order for this event to be successful, I will need help from all of you! Specifically, • Please put this event on your unit calendars now and announce it at weekly meetings so that parents can get it on their calendar and make plans to attend. • Consider bringing an appetizer or finger food that can be shared during our reception. • Please invite the following people from your units so they can be properly recognized for their achievements: • Any scouts who have earned the rank of Eagle Scout since December 2015 • Any youth or adults who earned a religious emblem since December 2015. The council does not keep records of these awards, so it is up to provide the information so the youth/adults can be properly recognized. A religious recognition form is attached. • Any Venturers who have earned the Silver Award and/or the Ranger Award since December 2015. A venture recognition form is attached. • Each unit should nominate one or more adult in their unit that have gone above and beyond to enhance the unit or the overall Scouting program for a 2016 Distinguished Leadership Citation (DLC) award. The nomination form is attached. Once all of the nominations have been evaluated by the district selection committee, you will be notified as to which of your nominees will be awarded the DLC. At that point, please encourage your recipients to attend the recognition event. • Give careful consideration to individuals that should be nominated for the District Award of Merit (DAOM). This is the highest award a district can award to a Scouter and is available to those who render sustained service of an outstanding nature at the district or Venturing division level. The nomination form is attached.
I will be accepting nomination forms starting today through the November 17, 2016 Roundtable meeting. Due to the short period of time between that roundtable, Thanksgiving and the event, I will not accept any nominations of any kind after November 17th. I am more than happy to accept nominations in September and October – no need to wait until the last minute! Thank you, Kristin Meyer
