Community Organization Award
Community Organization Award

A Community Organization Award can be used by any community organization, specifically recognized by the BSA's Relationships Division, while serving as an adult member of the BSA, to honor its volunteers for Scouting. A community organization is permitted to create its own neck medallion and to award a gold on purple square knot badge with a gold border.

Note: This is not a BSA award created for partner organizations to give as a recognition/award for their members, but is offered to allow our Scouting volunteers to wear an approved BSA recognition device (the square knot) on their uniform as the BSA has a policy that prohibits the wearing of non-BSA awards on our uniforms.
