Council Venturing Award of Excellence

The Council Standards of Venturing Excellence Award is presented by the BSA National Council to each council that completes the requirements during the calendar year. Each council should be evaluating their Venturing program to see if they are close to qualifying. To receive the award, the council must have a Venturing officers’ association, complete all 12 of the core requirements, and complete five of the nine electives for the award.


Once these requirements are met, the council should fill out the nomination form, acquire all of the necessary signatures, and send it to:

Boy Scouts of America
SUM 209
1325 W. Walnut Hill Lane
P.O. Box 152079
Irving, TX 75015-2079

If your council completes the requirements, it will be recognized at the Venturing reception at the National Annual Meeting with a framed certificate and be listed on the national and regional Venturing websites. We hope to see many councils receive this recognition at the 2014 National Annual Meeting.

I hope to see you there!
