The Rookie of the Year Award is an award to be given to an adult whose first year of service at the unit level has significantly impacted the youth and adults in the unit.
Many new Scouters join a unit and automatically plug in and make significant and lasting contributions, despite being “Green.” The expectation is that they’ll continue to serve in a variety of capacities serving their unit. The Mustang District Rookie of the Year Award is intended to properly recognize an individual new to your unit whose first year of service has had a significant impact on the youth, program, or committee on a unit level. Each unit may make one nomination.
Nominees must be currently registered in Scouting and have completed training for their position. They should have commenced or completed their first year of service to your unit. Information given should relate only to unit level service. The unit will submit its nomination. The award will be presented at the District Dinner.
