Religious Awards

The BSA through various religious groups offers youth recognition for the growth and development of their religious faith. These awards vary from faith to faith. The programs are not written by the BSA, but rather by the individual faith community. The BSA recognizes the awards through a cloth square knot that may be worn on the uniform, and permits the wearing of the medallions on the uniform. This program is integrated into the Venturing Religious Life bronze award and the Trust award.

Adult recognition is of a different nature. The adults do not earn the religious award, rather the award seeks them. The adult awards are nominative in nature. nomination forms are available by following the links below.

Many of the awards (youth and adult) are maintained through agreements between the religious body and PRAY (Programs of Religious Activities with Youth). A listing provided by Pray is below.
