About The Emblem:
The Bronze Pelican Award is a local recognition approved by the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting.
It may be presented to:
The purpose of this program is to recognize the recipients outstanding contribution to the development of Catholic youth in the program of the Boy Scouts of America.
Recipients of the award must be exemplary adults and those recipients who are Catholic must have the approval of their respective pastors before the award is given. NOTE: Work accomplishment and dedication is the major criteria for receiving this award although a minimum of three years of service to youth and Scouting, with two years in our diocese, is required.
Each Unit, Council and Parish is requested to submit the name of a possible candidate for the reception of this award. A candidate may be submitted by the Scout Committee in his parish, group of individuals who are active in youth affairs in the parish or by the pastor, or registered scouter.
The Catholic Committee on Scouting for the Diocese will be permitted awards annually with emphasis on the importance of being selective, and that there be no feelings that any quota must be used every year. No honorary recognitions will be made.
The recipients of the award are to be sought after and selected by an active committee. This committee will be newly appointed annually by the diocesan chairman and chaplain at least 90 days before the date of the award presentation.
Recommendations should carefully detail how the nominee meets the guidelines for selection. The Bronze Pelican recommendations are evaluated on the basis of the guidelines described below.
