River Trails Volunteer Recognition Dinner Award Recipients.

District Award of Merit

Each year, the River Trails District recognizes 4 of its 1,000 volunteers with the district’s highest honor, the District Award of Merit.  There is no set criteria for the district award of merit; therefore, the award can not be sought.  Instead, the award seems to seek out its recipients.  The award honors those volunteers who, through exemplary service in scouting and their community, set themselves apart from others.
