What are the awards?

The Nova Awards incorporate and expand upon existing STEM-related adventures or badges in scouting. The Supernova Awards, as the name suggests, require further, in-depth achievement in STEM.

  1. National BSA’s STEM lists the Nova and Supernova Awards available to each rank on this page.
  2. Your local Scout Shop as well as sell Guidebooks for Cub Nova Awards, Boy Scout Nova Awards, and Venturer Nova Awards.
