Founder’s Award

The Founder’s Award was introduced at the 1981 National Order of the Arrow Conference. The Founder’s Award recognizes Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their Lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson.

Founder’s Award recipients wear a solid red ribbon with a gold arrow on their uniform. They receive a medallion with a wooden base to display proudly to their friends and family.

For said he, who serves his fellow, is of his fellows, greatest.
