The workbooks on this page are informal;they are intended to help your scout. The same goes for Gold cards; they are not at all required, but unit leaders, Counselors, Mentors, scouts, and parents may find them useful to track progress on the Nova and Supernova Awards. As new awards are developed, we are working on building new workbooks and updated Gold Cards. If you have suggestions or resources to share with other scouts, please email it to us at
