It’s important to let the community know how Scouting benefits our families and neighborhoods. That’s why we offer the Unit Marketing Award for Scouts and Scouting leaders who get the recognition they deserve from the local press.

Description: The Unit Award of Marketing Excellence is for Packs, Troops, Teams, Crews, Posts and Ships. The award is designed to encourage Units to share all the good things they do with their local media such as TV, radio, local papers, school newspapers, church bulletins, etc.
