National Awards and Recognition
The Order of the Arrow provides opportunities for its members to excel and be recognized for their accomplishments. These recognitions are provided at two levels of the organization, either at the local lodge level or at the National level. Individual members may be recognized or entire lodges. The awards and honors provided here are standard throughout the organization. Individual lodges may form and provide their own local awards such as "Brother of the Year", "Most Active Arrowman", and other achievement awards.
The awards and recognitions provided in the first list are decided and presented by each lodge. Although presented at the lodge level, they still require National Order of the Arrow Committee approval prior to be bestowed on or presented to the recipients. Due to the local nature of these recognitions, lodges are strongly encouraged to maintain their own list of these recipients.
The awards and recognitions provided in the second list are decided and presented by the National Order of the Arrow Committee. Since these awards and recognitions are provided nationally, each award includes an archive of all recipients. The third list includes some past awards that are no longer available, but may be of historical interest.
