Unit Elections

Each year, upon holding a troop or team election for youth candidates which results in at least one youth candidate being elected, the unit committee may recommend one adult (age 21 or over) for every three youth elected. Selection and induction into the Order of an adult Scouter takes place only when the adult's job in Boy Scouting or Varsity Scouting will make Order of the Arrow membership more meaningful for the youth membership. It must not be for the purpose of adult recognition.
