2004 OA Service Grant Recipients
For the past several years, the National Order of the Arrow
Committee has provided
matching service grants for a limited number
of projects submitted by application to
the national OA office. A total of
$35,000 was made available for distribution for
projects in 2004. The evaluators considered the
innovative scope and design
of the project, how the project impacts a significant number of
Scouts, and how the project enhances Cub Scouting or Boy Scouting
in the council.
