Your patrol can earn the award by doing the following over a period of three months:

  • Have a patrol name, flag, and yell. Put your patrol design on equipment and use your patrol yell. Keep patrol records up to date.
  • Hold two patrol meetings every month.
  • Take part in at least one hike, outdoor activity, or other scouting event.
  • Complete two good turns or service projects approved by the patrol leaders' council.
  • Help two patrol members advance one rank.
  • Wear the full uniform correctly (at least 75 percent of the patrol's membership).
  • Have a representative attend at least three patrol leaders' council meetings.

The National Honor Patrol Award is an embroidered star worn beneath the patrol medallion, and will spotlight a patrol as a high-standard group. Help your patrol become a National Honor Patrol.
