Does your unit have a story that has received local media attention? We want you to share it with us. We also want to encourage you to seek media coverage for the good things your unit does. Sometimes we don't realize how big of an impact Scouting makes on our youth and communities. Something as basic as a roadside clean up with your Boy Scout Troop could merit a full page in your local newspaper!
The Unit Marketing Award of Excellence is for packs, troops, teams, crews, posts and ships. The award is designed to encourage units to share the news of what they are doing in their communities with local media, like newspaper, radio, TV, school newsletters, church bulletins and more!
Troop 308 from Soaring Eagle District
In September, Alex Cassasa's Heroism Award recognition was covered by KETV, and Omaha TV station. Alex saved the life of a three-year-old drowning in a hotel swimming pool. Then in October, Nick Brown's Eagle Scout project, benefitting Angel Works, a non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of life for young adults, was covered in the Douglas County Post Gazette.
All units submitting an application will receive a certificate. They will also receive recognition in the BSA Bugle and on the Council website. Quarterly winners will receive a special patch for each member of their unit.
