Outdoor Ethics Patch Design Contest

The National Capital Area Council’s Outdoor Ethics Committee is calling on scouts of all ages to design a patch for the new NCAC Outdoor Ethics Awareness award for Cub Scouts. The winning design will become the Cub Scout-level Outdoor Ethics award for our council.


The patch design must include the following elements:

  • Words “Outdoor Ethics”
  • Acronym “NCAC”
  • Natural/outdoor elements
  • Fleur-de-lis


The design will be judged on inclusion of the 4 elements above and its theme of Outdoor Ethics. Copyrights and trademarks must be observed and nothing should used without permission.


Send your patch design to Sara Holtz, Outdoor Ethics advocate for Powhatan District, at sh12sh34@gmail.com


Submissions are due August 15


The winner will receive a copy of Leave No Trace in the Outdoors written by Dr. Jeffry Marion, a certificate of appreciation signed by the Chair of the Outdoor Ethics Committee, and mention in the Scouter’s Digest.


Good luck!!!
