Centurion Award

centurionFor nearly 100 years, the Order of the Arrow has purposefully recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. Therefore, our organization’s centennial provides a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps.

This award is a one-time recognition associated with the centennial anniversary of the OA that is bestowed by the National Order of the Arrow Committee. It is modeled after a similar program in the BSA’s 100th anniversary celebration, the 2010 National Hall of Leadership. Accordingly, this recognition is an opportunity to highlight lodge development over the last century and the many individuals, both youth and adult, who were instrumental to this success. These honorees will serve as exemplars of leadership, modeling to others a commitment to cheerful service as the Order of the Arrow enters its second century.  More information about the award can be found at http://www.oa-bsa.org/pages/content/centurion-award.

Sasquesahanough Lodge was allowed to award 13 Centurion Awards, based on the size of our membership. Over the next few weeks we will announce the recipients on the Lodge website. The three recipients attending NOAC in August will receive their awards at that time. The remaining recipients will receive their awards at an appropriate event after NOAC.
