Spark Plug Award

The annual Spark Plug Award is an award for an individual in a Pack, Troop, or Crew who, through their constant efforts, is a driving force in their Unit.

It is an award for those who may otherwise never be recognized at the district level for their contributions to their units. If you feel someone in your Unit is deserving of such an honor, please take the time to nominate them!
