Adult Recognition

Blackland Prairie's Individual Adult Scouting Awards

There are a number of awards in Scouting that recognize adults who make contributions to Scouting. Please nominate adult volunteers in your unit to recognize those deserving leaders. Your volunteers work hard to provide our youth a great and educational program. Recognize their efforts and sacrifices with the public recognition of a Scouting award.
Awards will be made at the Annual District Recognition Banquet on Sunday, January 20, 2018.

Spirit of Blackland Prairie Award (S.B.P.)

This award recognizes individuals in units who have performed extraordinary service to their units. Every Unit receives 2 nominations, units that have 50-99 youth members are entitled to an additional nomination, and Units with 100 or more youth members are allowed a total of 4 nominations.
The S.B.P. Award should be presented to someone within your own unit who has given their time to help provide a quality program for the youth within your Scouting unit. There is no tenure requirement for this award, but your unit committee MUST approve and submit it. Deadline for submission: 12/31/17.
