Venturing Summit Award Procedures


The Summit Award, the highest award of Venturing, may be earned by those Venturers who have matured in their personal direction, skills, and life competencies, and who have accepted the responsibility to mentor others and serve their communities in a lasting way.

After completion of the Summit Award, a medal and a knot is awarded that is worn above the left pocket of the uniform for daily wear. This award may be awarded at a crew recognition ceremony (similar to a Boy Scout Court of Honor), organized by the youth Vice President - Administration. This award may be presented more than once; it may be awarded again at a school or other venues to promote awareness within the community.
