Lodge - Vigil Honor Nomination Posted Feb. 11, 2017
The nomination period for 2017 Vigil Honor candidates is now open and will close April 25, 2017. The Vigil Selection Committee is scheduled to convene in the afternoon on May 6, 2017 after the COC. Submit your nomination using the NEW Vigil Nomination Form available on this website. Submissions of older forms will be rejected.

Any current Lodge member may submit a nomination form for another member from his or her Chapter or the Lodge. Chapters are encouraged to create a Vigil Selection Committee or appoint a member to handle the nominations. Please take the time to answer the questions on the nomination form. Any lack of information for your candidate will most likely have a negative effect on the chances of them being selected. If you truly believe the candidate is deserving, take the time to thoroughly complete the nomination form.

Alertness to the needs of others is the mark of the Vigil Honor. It calls for an individual with an unusual awareness of the possibilities within each situation. The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: their Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or their Scout Camp. Under no circumstances should tenure in the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor Recommendation.

To be considered, all nominees must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America in the Golden Empire Council, and a member in good standing the Amangi Nacha Lodge. The individual must have been a Brotherhood member for a minimum of 2 years at the time that the nominating committee reviews their nomination.
