This award is presented at the Birthday by the Drum and Bugle Corps Captain(s) to one of the scouts within the D&B Corps. The award is represented by a purple ribbon for the scout's Class A Dress Uniform.


There are not many definitive requirements to earn this award as the judgment is at the Corps Captain's decision. However, the scout that receives this award has to be in the Drum and Bugle Corps and it cannot be awarded Captain himself.

The Captain(s) can choose to either give one award for the entire group or separate awards, one for each the drum and bugle sections. Usually when there are two Captains, they will each give one out and when there is only one Captain, he only gives one.

Each year the criteria can range from most improved, best player (excluding the captain), most spirited, most active, most helpful, and other positive characteristics that make a scout deserving of recognition in the captain's eyes..
