2015 Scout of the Year
Since the creation of the Scouting movement in America during 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has sought to teach boys to become better youth, better citizens, and better leaders for the country. As you look across the fabric of America, countless business leaders, politicians, astronauts, and even presidents credit having been in Scouting as a major part of their success. Scouting provides the fundamental skills needed to be the best you can be.
In the Middle Tennessee Council, we want to begin a new tradition this year, in which we recognize a youth member in each of our traditional Scouting programs; Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing. These Scouts will have gone beyond the expected, and reached unparalleled heights in service to others. The Scout of the Year Award will recognize one registered Scout each from the three program areas. The youth must be a registered and active member of Scouting during the year the nomination is submitted. Reasons to be considered for this recognition can be, but are not limited to, exemplary community service, heroism, lifesaving, and other notable deeds during the award year.
To nominate a Scout, click here to access the online application form, or click here to print the application form. Additional pages may be attached if needed to describe the youth’s actions. A youth will be selected from each program group (Cubs, Boys, and Venturers). The Scouts chosen as Scout of the Year will be included in speaking opportunities at District and Council functions, and will also be featured in all council social media, as well as Jet Trails magazine. The submission deadline for consideration is October 22, 2015.
