The Chief Scout's Award
These awards recognize excellence in youth participants. The Chief Scout’s Award is in recognition of the badges earned to that point and is the highest program award a Scout can achieve. Recipients are recognized around the country as being leaders in their own Troop and community.
Scouts may receive the Chief Scout’s Award after completing the requirements, which are listed in their handbook. They are evaluated on their achievement by their Leaders and fellow Scouts. After moving on to Venturer Scouts, they have three months to complete any remaining requirements for the Award.
The Queen's Venturer Award <- Link to Requirements Checklist
The Queen’s Venturer Scout Award is presented to Venturer Scouts who have acquired competence and skills that will be of considerable use to themselves, their Company and their community. These competencies and skills are listed in their handbook. These Venturer Scouts will have also been recognized by the company and the Advisor as being worthy of receiving this award. The Award signifies that a Venturer Scout has, in the opinion of those who know the Venturer, both the character and ability to be of significant help to other people.
