Recognition/Awards

Recognition

Recognition is earned in many ways. The achievment of Eagle Scout is very high on our list. Adult recognition takes on other forms. Nominations for the Silver Beaver, the District Award of Merit, Boy Scouter of the Year, Cub Scouter of the Year, and Spark Plug Awards are encouraged at Roundtable. Several awards are presented through the District and Council. The Silver Beaver Award recognizes significant service both within and outside Scouting, demonstrating a greater service to the community in general. The Charles D. Watt Advancement Award and the Lifetime Scoutmaster Award were introduced in 1998. These recognize Troops and Individuals that have given that little bit extra to make a successful Scouting program at the Troop level. Those receiving the awards are recognized at the Interlakes District Dinner tenatively scheduled for May 13, 2010. Interlakes has qualified for Quality District on (at least) four occasions. Fulfilling the requirements for Quality District is a major effort.
