Unami Lodge One, Founding Lodge of the Order of the Arrow

Founders Award

The Founder's Award was created in 1981 by the National Order of the Arrow Committee to honor and recognize those Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates to his fellow Arrowmen that he memorializes in his everyday life the spirit of achievement as described by OA's founders E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson.

While the Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction, the Founders Award is used to recognize those Arrowmen, youth and adult, who have impacted the Lodge in a positive and lasting way. This is a rare and distinguished honor, to recognize the spirit of our Founders in another. Lodges may petition the National Council to present up to four awards annually, based on lodge membership. If the award is presented to more than one recipient, at least one must be under 21 years of age.
