ABOUT THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN’S AWARD

DCADHONORS INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE PROVIDED OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

The Distinguished Citizen Award is presented to individual community leaders who provide outstanding civic service to the adult and/or youth in the community.

Those who receive the award are not necessarily Boy Scout volunteers, but rather individuals who personify what the Boy Scouts stand for – good citizenship, outstanding moral fiber with a dedication to others, and for living their lives by the Scout Oath and Law.

The recipients are honored at a Distinguished Citizen’s Awards presentation. We are all looking forward to a public presentation after the pandemic subsides. Until then, the presentations are in an intimate setting with a few friends and family and shared on digital media.
