Venturing Awards Get Their Names


Venturing, the high-adventure program for young men and women who are at least 14 (or 13 and finished with the eighth


grade) and younger than 21, has seen just 0.66 percent of Venturers earn any awards during its history. It’s time for a change. Gone are the


current Bronze, Gold and Silver awards. In their place are the Venturing, Discovery, Pathfinder and Summit awards, sure to keep Venturers interested, engaged and


(most importantly) having fun. The award names and requirements were


developed and tested with current Venturers and adult volunteers. College admissions counselors and human resources recruiters got their say, too. The hope is that some day the Summit Award (Venturing’s new top honor) will have name recognition on par with the Eagle Scout rank. Venturers may begin earning the new


awards in May 2014. Or they can continue working toward the Bronze, Gold and Silver awards until they are discontinued on Dec. 31, 2014. Everyone must use the new awards by Jan. 1, 2015. Current Venturers will skip the Venturing


Award — which teaches the basics of the program — and begin working on the Discovery Award. New Venturers would start by completing the Venturing Award. Learn more at scouting.org/scoutsource/
