Council Standards of Venturing Excellence

The Central Region Venturing Committee is pleased to offer the Council Standards of Venturing Excellence Award (CSVE). Council Standards of Venturing Excellence Award Forms are Due by February 15 of each year.

A council will be eligible for the award if they earn the required amount of points correlating to the Bronze, Silver, or Gold level. However, all councils are strongly encouraged to submit the form even if they do not qualify for an award level. The Council Standard of Venturing Excellence Award is determined based on successfully achieving the 2016 criteria by December 31, 2016.

The Council and VOA leadership completes the form. It is completed shortly after the end of the calendar year for which you are submitting for the award.   The deadline is Feb 15, 2017.

Recognition items will include recognition in the Central Region newsletter and listing on crventuring.org as well as a certificate presented at the BSA National Annual Meeting and a mention on venturing.org

To apply for the award, fill in the council information at the top of the form, mark the requirements that have been completed, and get the requested signatures. Mail or email the completed form to the National Venturing office.
