Vigil Nomination Forms

The Vigil Honor is unique. It is a high mark of distinction and recognition for arrowmen who, by the reason of exceptional service and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position. As such, it is the highest honor that an Order of the Arrow Lodge can bestow on its members. The Vigil honor is not earned; it is given to honor someone for going above and beyond the description of his or her position in scouting, for the greater good of the boys. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation. To be eligible for consideration for the Vigil Honor, an arrowman must have been a Brotherhood member for at least two years at the time of the Lodge Vigil selection meeting; and a member in good standing with the Del-Mar-Va Council, B.S.A. and Nentego Lodge (registered with dues paid). 

Once completed the nomination form can be emailed to or handed into the Honors Chair no later than the start of Fellowship on Friday of the Spring weekend.
