Troop 103 - Scout of the Year Program
Scout of the Year Program

Each year, beginning in 1985, we began recognizing the top three Scouts in our Troop The Scouts earn points throughout the year for participation in various activities and payment of dues. With an emphasis on "Character Counts" by the National Office, it was decided, in 2003, to add another element to determine the Scout of the Year.

The Selection Process

After the last event for the year has been completed, a member of the Troop Committee will tally the points for each Scout. This data is gathered from two sources. 1) Records for dues, attendance and wearing of uniform are provided by the Troop Treasurer. 2) The Troop Master application is used to provide data for the remaining requirements. The Troop Committee member will tally the points for all Scouts. The names of the top five Scouts are then presented to a three member sub-committee of the Troop Committee. The sub-committee will then decide which Scout of the top five best exemplifies true Scout-like Character and is worthy to be called the Scout of the Year for Troop 103.

Following evaluation by the sub-committee, a gold (1st), silver (2nd) and bronze (3rd) medals are awarded to three Scouts who best exemplify Scout-like Character. The gold medal recipient will also have his name placed on the Scout of the Year plaque in our showcase
