Nampa-Tsi Lodge

The Founder's Award

Founders Award In 1981, the National Order of the Arrow committee established a new award to memorialize the founder and co-founder of our brotherhood: E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson. 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 Arrowman who demonstrates to fellow Arrowmen that he or she memorializes the spirit of achievement as described by our founders in his or her daily life. The award is a handsome bronze medallion bearing the likeness of Goodman and Edson, with a wooden base and brass plate suitable for engraving. The award is suitable for display.

Also available is the Founder's Award ribbon, similar to the universal arrow ribbon, except that it has a gold-colored arrow suspended from a red ribbon.

This ribbon may be worn on the Scout uniform, or it may be worn on the recipient's coup thong.

Who can receive such an award?

In order to receive this honor, an Arrowman must be a member of Nampa-Tsi Lodge in good standing. He or she must also have given longterm and unselfish service to Scouting and to the Nampa-Tsi Lodge of the Order of the Arrow (in accordance with the purposes and Obligation of the Order of the Arrow). The number of recipients also depends on the membership size of the lodge. Also, if more than one award is presented, one must be to a youth member under the age of twenty-one.
