Awards and Recognition

We want to thank all our volunteers and members for their contribution to Scouting, and recognise their achievements.

You can use an award to recognise:

  • gallantry and meritorious conduct
  • outstanding and exceptional service
  • long service

Long service awards are automatically issued; however all other awards require a nomination to be made.

Making a Nomination

Anyone can nominate any adult member or associate member for a Good Service Award, as the awards are progressive there are different methods to nominate someone depending on the previous awards they have been presented and the service they have given.

It is advisable to check that they have met the criteria, and the contact the District Commissioner to discuss the next steps.
