The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson. The youth of the Lodge nominate the adult recipients, and the adults of the Lodge nominate the youth recipients.
