PURPOSE: This award recognizes exceptional top leaders in the North Star District of the Northeast Illinois Council. It recognizes one leader per year in the positions of Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor, and Committee Chair. Exceptional Scouting programs take a great deal of vision and commitment, and recipients of this award exemplify the highest level of achievement to those ends. This award considers the unit's participation in district and council events, popcorn, roundtable, Journey to Excellence, and Friends of Scouting. It also takes into consideration the nominee's training record, previous awards, and Scouting background. 

PROCEDURE: Use this form to nominate your unit's top leader no later than December 1. Winners will be honored at the Annual District Awards Dinner in February of the following year.
