Although I don't know your specific circumstances, I would be inclined
to give him the award. If the service he has given to the troop so far
has been good, don't try to force him to do something he doesn't want to.
Instead, try to tell him how important it is for him to come to meetings
and campouts to serve as a role model for the other boys. If you deliver
an ultimatum, you are probably just going to alienate him, and Scouting
will lose a potentially good leader.
