On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Area Venturing Leadership AwardThe Area VLA has been added to the different levels that it can be earned by youth.
The Venturing Leadership Award is presented by councils, areas, regions, and the National Council to youth Venturers who have made exceptional contributions to Venturing and who exemplify the Venturing Code and Oath.
To qualify for one of these award levels, nominees must do the following:
Be registered and involved as a Venturer for at least one year. Be a youth member when nominated for the award. Hold a leadership position or an office at the unit, district, council, area, region, or national level, as appropriate for the level of the award presented.
Show exceptional dedication and give outstanding leadership and service to Venturing and Venturers (on the level appropriate for the award).
Only regional and national forms are sent to the national office.
Council Leadership Award recommendations are to be sent to the local council office.
The updated form is now available at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/Venturing/pdf/512-501_WEB.pdf
The new form allows for use at all levels--council, area, region, and national.
