Those wishing to submit a proposal for a new NAD Adventurer Award must follow the steps listed below:

Here are the steps:

  1. Send the proposed Star/Chip/Award to the Award Focus Group Chairperson. It must include
    the following.
    1. Name of the Star/Chip/Award
    2. Sample design of the Star/Chip/Award patch
    3. Statement as to the purpose or need for the Star/Chip/Award (What benefit should the Adventurers receive physically, mentally and/or spiritually?)
    4. When deciding on your requirements, try to incorporate the different learning styles and consider the following:
      • Spiritual application 
      • Facts knowledge - introductory level to topic
      • Craft inclusion
      • Physical activity Star/Chip/Award
    5. Answers (or description) for the requirements including list of resource materials.
    6. Specify the level for which this Star/Chip/Award is intended (PreK, K, 1, 2, 3, 4).
    7. Specify what category the Star/Chip/Award is for:
      • My God
      • My Family
      • My World
      • My Self 
  2. Once the Award Focus Group has reviewed and/or revised the Star/Chip/Award, one of two things will happen:

     

     

    1. If selected, it will be returned to be pilot tested in your club and the Focus group will select other clubs to pilot test the Star/Chip/Award.

       

    2. If not selected, you will be notified.

  3. Once this award has been pilot tested in your club, complete your  Evaluation Form and return it to the Award Focus Group Chairperson.
  4. The Adventurer committee meets once a year. At that time, the final approval of Star/Chip/Award will be made.
