The Northern Ridge District Honor Unit Requirements document provides descriptions, rules and requirements for the Northern Ridge Honor Unit Award per the different subdivisions of Scouting (Cub/Boy/Venturing/Sea Scout/Varsity). Also included is a description of what units will be eligible for when attaining Honor Unit Status.
If an event has already occurred or registration for an event has already been closed the unit may check off that requirement as done. If you feel a requirement is unfair or discriminates against your unit, please discuss this issue with either your Unit Commissioner, the Honor Unit Commissioner (Mark Kopel) or the District Commission (Jere Stokely) and they will bring it up for discussion at the Commissioners Meeting
If you have any questions about the Northern Ridge Honor Unit please feel free to contact your Unit Commissioner.
