WANTED...For Outstanding Service to Scouting...YOUR NOMINATIONS!
The Greater Victoria Honours and Awards Team are in a bind... and we need your help desperately. There are WAY TOO MANY Scouters out there whom have served without formal recognition from Scouts Canada, and we are on a mission to get these people recognized.
We would like you to go through your files, your records, anything you have and get us the nomination forms for those wonderful people without whom we could not run this program for all of the youth.
Now who are we targeting... those who have been working hard at area, national, and international events for 20 plus years??? NO!!!! We want all groups to look hard at all Scouters who have 3 years or more in service to their groups. Help us achieve our goal of recognizing more people than we did last year!
You can also help by completing your own "MY SCOUTING HISTORY" and giving it to your own Group's Recognition Coordinator or Group Commissioner.
For more information, contact our DAC Recognition!
This section is dedicated to the youth and adult volunteers that have earned formal recognition from Scouts Canada, either through Scouts Canada's Honours & Awards program, for Long Service, or for youth earning Scouts Canada Awards.
You can browse through these pages by clicking on the links in the left-side menu.
The links below connect to the appropriate forms located on the national Scouts Canada site. It is our hope to eventually provide a form that can be completed on-screen.
The formal program is described in Bylaws, Policies and Procedures. We will try to enhance the information contained there and provide additional information on informal recognition.
If you are trying to draft an award application for a deserving Scouter and are stuck when trying to decide what to say, here are 20 Questions to ask yourself that may help to get you going.
For more information on Recognition of Scouters please email or telephone our DAC Recognition, Ron Bilinsky
