National Service Award
It is one of the goals for Amangamek-Wipit Lodge to earn the National Service Award, below is a little about the award.
The National Service Award was established in 1999 to recognize lodges in each region that have performed outstanding service, both in a qualitative and a quantitative sense, to their council. The National Service Award Petition is submitted along with the lodge re-charter application. To be considered for the National Service Award, a lodge must be certified as a National Quality Lodge the year in which the National Service Award Petition is submitted. Two lodges per region will be granted the National Service Award each year.
The National Service Award petition requires lodges to submit information on current lodge membership (the size of a lodge is a factor when considering the magnitude of the service it has provided), a detailed description of the largest and most meaningful service project the lodge has completed for its council, and a record of all service performed by the lodge for the council since the last re-charter process. Service for this award is defined as any project that has directly benefited the Scouting program in the council.
Documentation of Service form for Chapter Chiefs and Chapter Advisers to submit their record of service to the lodge.
Chapter Chiefs & Advisers, make sure to print out the above document before each OA event. Then make sure to send in the completed Document to the Lodge Staff Adviser no later than one week after completion of the event.
