Scouting News Feedback:
A big thank you to everyone that entered. We received some great feedback on what visitors wanted to see on Scouting News:
- More features on cub scouts!
- Arts & Crafts Resources
- Scouting tips and quick lessons. Something not everyone knows but should in order to be a better scouter.
- Annual updates and pictures on the Summit
- Information about Outstanding Pack/Troop Achievements
- More Girl Scout info. I have both Boy & Girl Scouts in my home!
- More info info on Patrol Z! (All of the Patrol Z articles are featured on the Summit’s Blog)
- More information on recruiting from other Pack’s
- Less news release type articles
- Any inside-the-organization efforts to purge our anti-gay bigotry
- I’d like to see what scout units aredoing aorund thecountry
- Randomly spotlighted troops doing good turns.
- Something to draw high school age kids to articles of interest to them
- Turn the question thing into an online forum that you can use for publication in the Scouting magazine. (Scouting News is not associated with Scouting Magazine.)
- If I had one thought, it would be a place to collect cool scout links of the day – DIGG like.
- How to make scouting a great opportunity for kids with hearing or seeing disabilities and how to keep parents with similar disabilities in the loop.
- More contests and giveaways. (We will try!)
- What you have is good
- Brief biographies of famous people that were Scouts
- Maybe info about what people have done that goes above and beyond for scouting. We have someone like that in MN that I am happy to know.
Thanks for the great feedback and entries!
