Dear Scout Leaders,
The North Florida Council is excited to announce its 2nd annual Whitney M Young Recognition Gala. This extraordinary event will be the medium to present the Whitney M Young, Jr. Service Award.
The purpose of the Whitney M Young Jr. Service Award is to recognize outstanding services by an adult individual or an organization for demonstrated involvement in the development and implementation of scouting opportunities for youth from rural or low-income urban backgrounds - this is in fulfillment of Whitney Young's dream of justice and equality for all.
If you know someone that meets this criteria, please nominate them for this honorable award.

The honorees will be recognized at the Whitney M Young Dinner on December 11, 2014 in Jacksonville, FL.
