Commissioner’s Commendation Nominations

This is a local award used by any commissioner to recognise youth members, volunteers and non-members for their contribution to the Scouts.

It is important that we recognise those people in Scouting who achieve remarkable things, or show outstanding support to Scouting and our greater communities.

For our adult volunteers with greater than five years service, the Scouts operate a national Good Service Awards scheme.

Commissioner’s Commendation Award

Another way to mark a contribution is with a Commissioner’s Commendation Award.

The Commissioner’s Commendation is a local award that can be used by any commissioners to recognise adult and youth members and non-members for their contribution to the Scouts.

This award carries no set criteria and is illustrated by a purple knot. This award is worn in the same location on the uniform as other adult awards.

Because the Award is administered locally, they can often be produced in a timely manner to link with key events or provide recognition while the services are fresh in the mind.

Awarding a Commissioner’s Commendation does not restrict further nominations for National Good Service Awards.
