OA Crenshaw Arrowman of the Year
The O. A. (Olvin Alexander) Crenshaw Arrowman of the Year Award is given to one adult and one or more youth per year for outstanding service to the Lodge. All members of the Lodge may make nominations for the Arrowman of the year Award. The youth recipient is voted on by adults and the adult recipient is voted on by youth. It is voted on at the September Executive Committee Meeting. These Awards are presented at the Lodge's annual banquet in December.
This section is for awards that the Ceremonial Team has earned over the years at during Section Conclaves.
Distinguished Service Award
The Distinguished Service Award is presented to those Arrowmen who have rendered outstanding service to the Order on a sectional, area, regional, or national basis. It is given primarily for dedicated service to the Order and Scouting over a period of time. Only a limited number of awards are presented each year, and Arrowmen whose service records are the most outstanding and extend the farthest beyond the local lodge level are selected.
Introduced at the 1981 National Order of the Arrow Conference, the Founder's Award was created to honor and recognize those Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to the lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowmen who demonstrates to fellow Arrowmen that he or she memorializes in his or her everyday life the spirit of achievement as described by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson. The Award is a handsome bronze medallion bearing the likenesses of E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson, with wooden base and brass plate suitable for engraving. Also available is a special Founder's Award arrow ribbon, with a gold colored arrow suspended from a red ribbon. Lodges may petition the National Order of the Arrow Committee to present up to four awards annually, based on lodge membership. If the lodge presents more than one award, one must be to a youth under the age of 21.
*Larry Banks is the first Arrowman to earn this award as both a youth and adult in the Order of the Arrow.
