Everyone likes to be thanked and recognising the work done by Scouters in your Group/County is of the utmost importance. One way of doing this is through the Awards Scheme. While no one expects reward for the contribution they make to Scouting, receiving thanks by way of an award is a very positive experience for the recipient.
The National Awards Committee meets 3 times per year and the next meeting is due to take place in April 2017. This could be a good opportunity for you to say ‘thank you’ to a Scouter in your Group/County. Why not apply for an award for someone in your Group and present it at an up coming event.
For the next meeting meeting, applications can be submitted up until 31st March 2017. Click on the link below for more information.
