Venturing Leadership Award

The Venturing Leadership Award is presented by councils, areas, regions, and the BSA National Council to Venturers and adults who have made exceptional contributions to Venturing and who exemplify the Venturing Code.

Requirements

Venturing Leadership Award candidates must be registered and involved in Venturing as a Venturer or an adult for at least one year. They must hold a leadership position or office on the unit, district, council, area, region, or national level (as appropriate for the level of award presented). The candidate must show exceptional dedication and give outstanding leadership and service to Venturing and to Venturers on the level appropriate for the award.

Quota Restrictions

Councils may present two awards for youth and two for adults per year for up to 50 crews/ships and one additional youth and adult award per year for each fraction of 25 crews/ships above 50. Example: For 51 registered crews/ships, a total of three youth and three adult awards may be presented; for 78 crews/ships, four youth and adult awards could be presented. Areas may present 8 awards per year. Regions may present 8 awards per year. National may present 8 awards per year.

Procedures

Venturing youth and adults may be recommended at the council, area, region, or national level of service by any member of the Boy Scouts of America, or anyone connected otherwise to the Venturing program. Form #25-203 should be used to submit the nomination. An additional sheet with 200 words or less explaining why the candidate should receive the award and letters of recommendation from school, church, clubs, etc., must be provided with the nomination form. Council level nominations should be submitted to the council service center, regional nominations should be submitted to the regional service center, and national nominations should be submitted to the national Venturing division. This award is nominative in nature and the candidate should not be notified of their nomination, the award seeks the individual rather than the individual seeking the award. It is permissible to resubmit candidates who previously were not granted recognition.
