Cross Timbers District
    • Dedicated Scouter Award

      (Unit award for work in unit of Troops 10 years old; one award for every 10 - 6 to 7 awards) 

       This award recognizes that within Scouting units of vintage years (at least 10 years), there are persons who have contributed much, often little known beyond that unit, to both the quality of its programs and its very survival through the years. Equally as often, these same persons have quietly contributed their time and talent to other units and thus to the Cross Timbers District, seldom receiving the recognition they deserve. Without their consistent service, high quality scouting programs would never reach our youth. No more than 1 annual award for every 10 units registered in the district.

      District Award (for work in the District)

The recipient is a friend to all and respects those with ideas and beliefs other than their own. The recipient is polite to all, regardless of age or position, understands that there is strength in being gentle, and treats others as they themselves wish to be treated. They are known to obey the Scout Law, the laws of the community and country. The recipient is known to look on the bright side, cheerfully do tasks that come their way, conserve natural resources, and carefully use time and property. They have the courage to stand for what they believe, even though it may not be what others believe. They keep their body and mind fit and clean and associate with others that live by the same ideals. They help keep the community clean and are involved in the community. The recipient is known to be reverent toward God and faithful in their religious duties, and they show respect toward others religious beliefs.
