OA UNIT OF EXCELLENCE AWARD FOR TROOP / TEAMS
Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award seeks to identify those units, and the leaders within them, who excel at incorporating the OA into their annual planning. This award is a tool for lodges to recognize, incentivize, and operationalize unit-level participation in Order of the Arrow programs. The OA Unit of Excellence Award criteria recognize units that invite the lodge to conduct quality unit elections, participate in lodge events and meetings, and operate a complete OA Troop Representative program.
The Unit of Excellence Award also contains recognition for key players in the Unit who help build a strong OA program there: Scoutmaster, Troop OA Representative, and Troop OA Representative Adviser.

The Agaming Maangogwan Patch Subscription is a way for members of the lodge to reserve patches in advance for a given year. The 2017 Patch Subscription goes on sale during the Winter Fellowship weekend and includes: National Jamboree; 5th Year Anniversary; Section Conclave Host Lodge & Theme; three Summer Camp Commemoratives; National Award “Reach Higher” flaps, etc.. Sales are limited to the first 100 individuals on a first-come, first serve basis.
There are patches on rare occasions that have been designated for some honor that would not be part of the patch subscription as they are usually for a token of service rather than for an event.
