Journey to Excellence Awards

"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units. It is basically a report card to measure your unit's performance, find out your strengths and weaknesses, recognize where your unit really stands out and encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA!
