The Sam Houston Area Council Excellence in Training Award has been established to recognize those units who have set a high standard in leadership training. Studies prove that youth stay in the program longer when they have trained leaders who know how to make the program fun and exciting.
A ribbon streamer will be awarded once during the calendar year to units achieving the goal of 75% direct contact leaders trained in their registered position. The Excellence in Training Award will be presented at the district roundtable at whatever time this benchmark is achieved.
A plaque will be presented to each unit achieving the goal of 100% direct contact leaders trained in their registered position. This award will be presented at the district dinner.
