Adult Recognitions (each may only be earned once)

(A list of prior adult awards is listed at the bottom of this screen.)

1) Bronze Pelican Award (NCCS/BSA)

The Bronze Pelican Award is a diocesan award to recognize the meritorious contributions of adults who serve Catholic youth through Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing. This medal affirms the work of those who help youth develop their spiritual lives within the context of these organizations or at the parish level.

2) St. George Adult Recognition (NCCS/BSA)

The St. George Adult Award is the NCCS® recognition for Adult (Boy) Scouters that is awarded at the diocesan level. Scouters are nominated by their peers and the CCS assesses the merits of those nominated. The number of St. George Recognitions a diocese committee can award each year is limited to a formula based on the number of Catholic units in the diocese. Recipients of the St. George Recognition are eligible to also receive the BSA Adult Religious knot.

The national requirements for the St. George Adult Recognition can be found on the NCCS website.

3) The Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Medal (NCCGSCF/GSUSA/CFUSA)

The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton recognition was inaugurated in 1980 to recognize the meritorious contributions of adults who serve Catholic youth through Girl Scouts and Camp Fire.
