In 2011, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) aligned with the President's Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition (PCSFN) with the shared goal of together promoting good health for America’s youth. The SCOUTStrong Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA) Challenge, a Scout-specific PALA challenge, is one of the results of this alliance.

PALA is designed to motivate participants to be physically active on a regular basis by allowing them to participate in activities they enjoy, as well as improving their eating habits. Earning a PALA is definitely doable by anyone at any fitness level.

This challenge is for everyone associated with the Boy Scouts of America, including Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturers, Parents, Volunteers, Council Staff, Board Members, Friends of Scouting, and BSA Alumni.

To earn the SCOUTStrong PALA Challenge Award, you are required to meet a daily activity goal of 30 minutes a day for adults and 60 minutes a day for kids under 18 for at least five days a week, for six out of eight weeks. Stick with the program and you’ll earn an award in less than two months.
