Vigil Honor Nominations

The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that a lodge can bestow upon its members. The award is given for unselfish service to the lodge, the OA, Scouting in general, or to a council camp. Any member of the lodge may nominate any other member for membership, provided that the member being nominated has been a Brotherhood member for two years at the time of nomination.

Nominations for Nataepu Shohpe’s first Vigil Honor class are now available on the Documents page. We are utilizing a web system this year for submissions, so all forms will need to be submitted electronically via the Vigil Nominations page. Please note that the deadline for submitting nominations is January 15, 2013.

Please let us know (click here) if you encounter any problems. We look forward to seeing as many submissions as possible!
