Event Description

**Please note, this event will take place over the course of the school day, but educational programming opportunities are part of the schedule**

As promised, we have been working hard to respond to feedback given in the Spring about relevant and age-appropriate recognition opportunities for youth for their top-section awards. The overwhelming feedback from Scouters that was submitted was that youth in younger sections preferred to be recognized at Group and Area level events. These types of situations allow for a “short and sweet” ceremony, and being surrounded by the people that helped them achieve this important milestone in their Scouting career. For senior sections, the feedback was that youth wanted an opportunity to be recognized formally for their achievements at the Council level, but also be able to participate in unique program opportunities to celebrate. To respond, we’re planning a fantastic event for senior section youth in Voyageur Council who have earned their Chief Scout Award, Queen’s Venturer Award, or Canadian Rover Scout Award over the course of the 2017/2018 Scouting year. Here’s where we need your help!

  1. Participants will receive an exclusive email invite for them and a parent/Scouter (if they wish) to join them at the event on September 17th, 2018.
  2. The list will be generated by those youth members who have their Top Section Award LOGGED IN MYSCOUTS.

That second point is critical, and was another factor in the cancellation of our spring event. It is essential if your youth members have completed this achievement, that the record be listed in MyScouts by September 16th, 2018 or they will not receive an invite to participate in this prestigious event.

For those unsure on HOW to enter this information in MyScouts, please review the step-by-step tutorial listed on the Help centre Website by clicking here.

We are encouraging all Scouters, regardless of what section they work with, to ensure that MyScouts is up to date with their section’s youth recognition.
