Do you know someone who has put their soul into scouting, our lodge and the Order of the Arrow, if so then please nominate them to receive the Founder’s Award. The Founder’s Award which is presented by the lodge on behalf of the national OA committee was established in 1981 in honor of Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson, the founders of the OA, who both had recently passed. The award is presented to Arrowmen that exemplify the spirit of self service epitomized by the founders and the phrase of “he who serves his fellows is of all his fellows greatest”. Each year we are permitted to give up to two awards out and if we give more than one award then one must be to a youth. With this history and significance of the award in mind please look around your units, chapters and the lodge and nominate those you deem worthy. Nominations can be made on line by clicking the link below. Nominations need to be recieved by October 1st to be considered. Founder’ Award Nomination Form Link.
