The Family of the Year Award is a recognition presented by the Aquila District. The award is available to all families involved in the Scouting programs as long as the adult(s) are either registered or eligible to be registered in the Boy Scouts of America and the family has at least one youth currently in the program. One family is chosen annually from those nominated.
- A family is defined as a domestic unit composed of at least two people – a parent or a guardian either registered or eligible to be registered in the Boy Scouts of America and a youth currently registered in the program.
- We desire you to think about all the families you know who contribute to the Scouting program – single-parent families and two-parent families. The nominated family must be giving noteworthy service to youth, both in the Scouting program and outside of Scouting.
- Each member should be a living example of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law and demonstrate Scout Spirit in all aspects of their daily affairs.
The award is presented at the district dinner. Nomination can be submitted online; paper nominations can be submitted at roundtable.
