The Asian American Spirit of Scouting Service Award is presented to people at all levels of the organization (executive board, district Scouters, unit personnel) and to people of all races and income levels. The council president designates a committee to administer the award for the council. This may be a special Asian American Spirit of Scouting Award committee or the council’s advancement and recognition committee. The committee should include at least one person who is familiar with the Asian-American community. The Scout executive or a designated staff member serves as advisor to the committee. The council’s annual quota of awards shall not exceed the number of districts in the council. Emphasis is on being selective, with no intention that the full quota must be used every year. The quota is noncumulative.

The council committee screens, prioritizes, and selects worthy recipients. Nominations may be submitted to the committee by committee members, professional staff, or any other registered Scouter.
