Awards and Recognition


An equally valuable part of every unit's advancement program is recognizing Scouts and Scouters for the myriad of other things Scouting has to offer. There are many websites that provide information on the various awards and recognition available, but the official site is Awards Central.


Awards Central has information on earning the following awards and recognitions in the table below. If you don't see something, please contact the NCAC ARC or Program Impact Department for more information.


CLICK HERE to go to Awards Central.


Additionally, the Guide to Awards and Insignia shows you how and where to properly wear each recognition you earn. The guide also covers some special regulations for jamborees, neckerchiefs, head gear, patch trading, and excess insignia.
