New International Spirit Award to Replace International Activity, Youth Exchange Emblems
The International Spirit Award is a temporary emblem that is awarded to registered Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and Scouters who have completed the necessary requirements, have gained a greater knowledge of international Scouting, and have a greater appreciation and awareness of different cultures and countries.
This award serves as a replacement for (and therefore eliminates) the International Activity emblem and the Youth Exchange emblem.
International Spirit Award emblems cost $4 each and can be purchased from the International Department. Visit www.scouting.org/international/applications to fill out the application with the date that each requirement was completed. All requirements must be met within five years from the start of the award. Please mail the completed, signed application and a check (made payable to Boy Scouts of America) to:
