Ala Award (Previous Honorees)
The Ala Award is a yearly award, presented for outstanding and dedicated service provided to the Lodge (or Chapter) over a number of years. At the discretion of the awards committee, it is presented to deserving youth and adult Arrowmen each year.
Ben Karlsen, Sr Service Award (Previous Honorees)
The Ben Karlsen, Sr. Service Award is a special award to recognize an individual for service to our lodge above and beyond what is normally expected, over an extended period of time. It is not intended to be a yearly award and only one award may be presented in any given year.
Tomahawk Award (Previous Honorees)
The Tomahawk Award is a local Lodge award. It is awarded to the person who is thought to have excelled during the year in the promotion of our Las Vegas Area Council overnight camping opportunities or assisting in day camps and trainings.
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 of office to one or more of the following:
Lodge / OA / Scouting community / Scout Camp
Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation.
Founder's Award (Previous Recipients)
Introduced at the 1981 National Order of the Arrow Conference, the Founder's Award recognizes Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson.
