Adult Recognition

St. George Adult Recognition (NCCS/BSA)

The St. George Adult Recognition is the NCCS recognition for Adult (Boy) Scouters that is awarded at the diocesan level.  Scouters are nominated by their peers and a committee is formed to assess the merits of those nominated. The number of St. George Recognitions a diocese committee can award each year is limited to a formula based on the number of Catholic units in the diocese. Recipients of the St. George Recognition are eligible to also receive the BSA Adult Religious knot.

The national requirements and a nomination form for the St. George Adult Recognition can be found on the NCCS website at  www.nccs-bsa.org.  Nominations are due on September 1st of each year and can be sent to the Diocesan Awards Chair.  The Award is presented at the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman by the Bishop on Award Recognition Sunday typically in June.

Diocesan Adult Recognition

The Bronze Pelican Award is a diocesan recognition sponsored by the Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese of LaCrosse. It may be presented to an adult who is working on the Scouting program under Catholic auspices, to Catholics in Scout units not chartered by the Church, and to those who have made a significant contribution to Scouting in the field of Catholic relationships. This award may be given to Catholic lay members, priests and pastoral coordinators, or those of another faith who have been supportive of Catholic Scouting.  The purpose of this program is to recognize the recipientís outstanding contribution to the development of youth in the programs of the Boy Scouts. 


The requirements and nomination form can be found at the bottom of this page.  The Bronze Pelican is awarded to the recipient at a ceremony at Mass by his or her Priest.
