The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position of office to one or more of the following: their lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or their Scout Camp.

A Vigil nomination is hosted each year in the fall and the Lodge members vote on the recipients. The recipients are ‘called out’ and recognized at the annual Lodge Banquet. These honored Arrowmen are then invited to participate in the Vigil induction at one of the council’s camps. For more information see the National OA website, your Chapter Adviser or you can contact the Lodge Adviser or Vigil Adviser.
