Nominations need to be received by October 23, 2019
The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to lodge, council, and Scouting. Membership cannot be won by a person's conscious endeavors. 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 Uh-To-Yeh-Hut-Tee Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, the Scouting community and Scout Camp.
Each year the lodge is allowed to nominate one member for every fifty active members of the lodge (rounded up to next fifty). Under NO circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor nomination. A nominee must currently be registered in Scouting, be member of the Order of the Arrow, active with Uh-To-Yeh-Hut-Tee Lodge and been a Brotherhood member for a minimum of two years. Recipients of the Vigil Honor will be selected by secret ballot cast by the youth members of the selection committee. The results of the election will be secret until the recipients are called out before the Lodge assembled for that purpose.
