The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Founded in 1915, it uses American Indian traditions and ceremonies to bestow recognition on Scouts selected by their peers as best exemplifying the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their daily lives. Inducted members are known as Arrowmen or brothers and are organized into local youth-led lodges for fellowship and the rendering of service to Boy Scout councils and their communities.

As a program of the Boy Scout division, candidates for the Order of the Arrow are selected by elections held annually in Boy Scout troops. Youth are elected by majority vote of the youth members of their unit. To be eligible for election, a Scout must be at least First Class rank, have fulfilled specified camping requirements (15 days in the preceding 2 years, with at least one extended camp in excess of 5 days) have the approval of his Scoutmaster and must be elected by the members of the troop. Most lodges or chapters support an election team to help hold the OA elections; it is charged to inform the unit of the service and duty required of an Arrowman, that only the most dedicated Scouts should be considered.
