Scouting History Form

Click here to download, fill out and print off a Scouting history form for an individual. This form is useful for tracking what positions an individual has been in and how many years they have been serving in Scouting. The form is also used for Silver Beaver nominations, but if you are using it to record a Scouting history only, simply ignore the first page and print off the last three pages of the form.

Click here to print out a nomination form to nominate an individual for District Award of Merit. Please submit completed forms to a member of the Key 3.

The District Award of Merit is highest honor that can be given by a district. It is awarded to registered Scouters with exceptional character and noteworthy service in Scouting programs and for service to community and church. The award is never sought after and comes without solicitation to those who are chosen. This award may only be awarded by a district to an individual once for that district.

General Criteria to Nominate an Individual:

  • Currently serving as an adult Scouting volunteer in any capacity in a unit, district, or council position.
  • Five to ten years of service.
  • Has been previously awarded the Second Miler Award
  • Has consistently shown the capacity and willinginess to go the extra mile to provide an outstanding Scouting program.
  • Has sought out training opportunities to improve their understanding of the Scouting program.

Both the Second Miler Award and the District Award of Merit are council awards presented by districts in the same manner that the Silver Beaver is a national award presented by councils. The award is available to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level. The award is made available annually on the basis of 1 for each 10 traditional units or fraction thereof for the Second Miler Award and 1 for each 25 traditional units or fraction thereof for the District Award of Merit. The district need not present all the awards to which it is entitled each year. It is not appropriate to nominate a Scouter who has already received this award.

A professional Scouter or other council employee may not receive this award based on employment service. However, a professional Scouter or employee who also serves as a volunteer Scouter may be eligible, based on volunteer service.
