HAT OUSTANDING SERVICE AWARD

This award recognizes outstanding contributions made to the High Adventure Program by Scouts, Scouters or other supporters. It generally recognizes volunteer service at the Council level as a member of the High Adventure Team Committee, but may also be used to recognize a youth who makes a significant program contribution, a leader at the troop level who has actively used the HAT program to benefit their youth, or an individual who provided an extraordinary service supporting the program on a short term basis.


This award was initiated in 2016 by Orange County Council Troop 292 to honor Guil Caliboso, their Scoutmaster of 20 years, who was an enthusiastic supporter of the HAT program at both the unit and council level.


Requirements:

  • Meet one of the following qualifications: a. Serve on a HAT committee at council, regional, inter-council, or national level for a minimum of three (3) years.  b. Serve as a unit leader (scoutmaster, assistant scoutmaster, or similar position) for a minimum of three (3) years. During this time he/she must demonstrate a history of promoting high adventure to youth by utilizing HAT awards within their unit. The unit leader must be HAT trained.  c. Provide a significant service to benefit the HAT program. The nature of this service is purposely left open, so as not to constrain the manner in which an individual may provide assistance or support.

  • Submit a letter of application containing the person's name and affiliation, their background and justification for being honored with this award. The application may be sent to any council, inter-council, or national HAT committee for review and approval.

  • Have the application for the award approved by a majority vote of the attending members of any convening HAT committee meeting at which a quorum is present.

  • Recipients will be recognized with a certificate signed by the Chairman of the convening HAT committee, and the HAT Outstanding Service Award emblem.

  • This award may only be conferred once to any given individual.
