They are also available on the COLBSA website on the Roosevelt Forms page.
The ROUGH RIDER AWARD is a Roosevelt District Award presented in the same manner that a District Award of Merit is presented by the Council.
The award is available to registered adult Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the Unit level. The award is made available annually.
It is not appropriate to nominate a Scouter who has already received this award (Won't be a problem this year!).
A professional Scouter may not receive this award based on professional service. However, a professional Scouter who also serves as a volunteer Scouter may be eligible, based on volunteer service.
1. A nominee must be a registered Scouter.
2. A nominee must have rendered noteworthy service at the Unit level.
3. Consideration must be given to the nominee's Scouting position and the corresponding opportunity to render outstanding service beyond the expectations of that position.
