See information and link below to webinar about the Congressional Award. Some of you may be interested in this!
Join us for this webinar to learn about why The Congressional Award is a perfect fit for students in the scouting community!
Hear from Members of Congress and former Eagle Scouts Congressman Pete Sessions (TX-17), Congressman Sanford Bishop (GA-02) and Congressman John Garamendi (CA-03), as well as a 2019 Gold Medalist and Eagle Scout, Fernando Miranda-Fred.
This hour-long program will provide Scouts the opportunity to learn more about our program and how their work with the Boy Scouts can easily translate to our program. Topics that may be discussed include how our longtime partnership with the Boy Scouts allows for scouts to put much of their work with their troop and communities towards earning their Congressional Award and how the values both the Award and the Scouts instill in their participants are one in the same. Both programs aim to demonstrate the value of hard work and service to others to their participants.
Please submit questions on the registration form linked below that you’d like our speakers to cover.
