I had to go and continually bug the office staff (just the one person responsible) about it. The award nomination was submitted on time. I inquired 6 months afterwards and was told "it was being looked into". After being a pain for a year, I find out that the form was lost at the National Office. Thankfully a copy was available and was able to be resubmitted with a letter of explanation as to why. To keep things short, it finally took me personally talking with the Area Professional to see things getting on the ball with the local professional staff. After months of perstering and bugging and whining and complaining, the award finally arrived Wednesday. The kid involved knows he was nominated but does not know that it is in the office in Dubois. Like I said, 2009 was a year of firsts for Troop 40 and the Troop would like to present the award.
