Knox Trail and Old Colony Councils have combined to form a new council and that new council needs a new name. Our new council has over 10,000 active members and we are asking you to submit your creative ideas for a new council name.
The New Council Naming Contest will run from June 22, 2017 to July 31, 2017 and submissions will be taken using the form below. This naming contest is open to all scouts and scouters in the new council.
All submissions will be reviewed by a group of scouts in late August who will recommend a dozen finalists to council leaders. A small team appointed by the board will select the final name from this list and it will then be voted on by the council board. A new patch design will be created after the board approves a new name.
Include with your name proposal a brief explanation why you think it would be a great name for the new council. There are over 200 Boy Scout Councils in the United States; check them out here. to get a feel for the range of council names. Generally names either represent the geography or history of the council. We come together from Knox Trail Council which has an historical name and Old Colony Council that has a historical geographic name.
So be creative, dig into history, explore our geography, think about how the values of scouting are exemplified in our community, and explore the beauty of nature around us. There’s a great name for our new council out there and we think that one of you has it!
