A Year of Celebration Award Program Starts Today

Posted on 01 September 2009 by Dan

Year of Celebration Award Program

A Year of Celebration – A Century of Making a Difference officially kicks off today! A year of Celebration – A Century of Making a Difference is an awards program specially developed for the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America for all Scouts, adult volunteers and Scouting alumni.

The award consists of a main patch, which is patterned after the official 100th Anniversary emblem, with five additional awards represented by 2″ ribbons from the patch. Program participants will earn recognition for making a difference in their communities due to their dedication to five of Scouting’s core values: Leadership, Character, Community Service, Achievement, and the Outdoors. Individuals will be able to display all earned awards at the same time on their uniforms by attaching award markers to the patch.

Awards may be earned as of September 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010.

There are five requirements for each age group. All you have to do is accomplish at least three of the five requirements to earn the award. You may want to do all five requirements, but three is all that you’ll need to qualify for the award. You can download the requirements from the National BSA website at http://ww2.scouting.org/100years/100years/sitefiles/1000/YourSource/PlanningTools/A_Year_of_Celebration/BSA_Year_Patch_Earning.pdf.

This program will provide every Scout, leader and alumnus a fun and meaningful way to participate in the 100th Anniversary. Each individual participating will benefit, as will every unit and community in the coun-try. Learn more about a Year of Celebration.
