Venturing Leadership Award

Nominations due December 23rd!

The purpose of the Council Venturing Leadership Award is to recognize youth for dedicated service on the district or council level.  Recognizing youth for their service works to both recognize youth members already serving as leaders and to motivate others to be servant leaders within the council.  It is presented to Venturers who have made exceptional contributions to Venturing in Illowa Council at the council or district level and who exemplify the Venturing Oath and Code

In order to be eligible to receive this award an individual must meet the following requirements;

  • Venturing Leadership Award candidates must be currently registered as a member.
  • They must have held a leadership position or office on the unit, district, council, area, region or national level.
  • And most importantly the candidate must show exceptional dedication and give outstanding leadership and service to Venturers and the Venturing program on the level appropriate to the award presented.


We have been fortunate, in the formative years of Venturing in Illowa Council to have youth that have shown the outstanding leadership and service qualities that make them worthy of such an award.  If you feel you know an individual is deserving of this award, I encourage you to nominate them.

Please fill out this form.

Nominations must be sent to the Illowa Council Scout office, c/o Bob Sutton by 12/23/14 with letters of recommendation included.  If you have questions, please contact Ina Pearsall at icgp@live.com
