Council Alumnus of the Year Lapel Pin

SAFRecognitions & Awards > Council Alumnus of the Year Lapel Pin


The Council Alumnus of the Year Award is different than other awards in Scouting as it does not simply recognize the individual for being a distinguished person or honor those giving time and energy to the BSA as a volunteer leader; Scouting already has awards that do that. This lapel pin is 3/8 of an inch in diaameter. It is uunique in that the Acorn comes off to use on the Alumni knot.

It is more of a combination between the two.

Primary consideration is given to those that remind Scouting alumni to maintain a lifetime relationship with Scouting, which enables Scouting to remain healthy for future generations. In addition, potential recipients of the award may be nominated based on the three following categories:

  • Career and/or avocation, such as achieving high honor or distinction in their chosen profession.
  • Community service, including contributions to Scouting or other community efforts or organizations.
  • Scouting promotion, contributing significantly to the promotion and/or advancement of the BSA alumni program and activities at a council level over a sustained period of time through word and/or deed.


RESTRICTED - This lapel pin can only be ordered by Councils for Presentation or reciptents.
