All right folks, it’s time to step up to the mic, and have your voices heard. The team has been hard at work designing the new top Rover Award, and we need your input.
Questions, comments, wording issues, complete disagreement with sections or requirements, requirements being not hard enough or too easy, something we missed all together; you name it, we want to hear it.
The award is broken down into six sections, which we are recommending are made into separate badges a Rover is required to earn before receiving the final Award. One option on the table is to combine sections into larger badges (Service & Leadership, Physical & Personal Development) so that there are four sub-badges before earning the top award.
Have at it! This is your award!
- All projects must approved by the individual’s crew (or appropriate body) prior to commencement.
- Upon completion, each individual requirement will be evaluated and approved by the crew (or appropriate body).
- All requirements must have proof of involvement. Trip logs, reports, photographs (with captions), newspaper articles, thank-you letters, and play programs are some examples of appropriate proof.
- The major projects should not be used for more than one requirement.
- Two (2) reports on projects of your choice must be shared with a different Rover crew or scouting group, in addition to your own crew.
- After the crew has approved the completion of all the award requirements, the Rover Award shall be reviewed by a higher body. Each Council should develop a youth adjudication procedure for the final award that fits their situation. If possible, the award should be reviewed by a sub-committee of a council or area Rover Roundtable, consisting of past award recipients – from various crews – and an Advisor.
