Re: Advice for training awards and recognition
- For the Venturing Traniers, you might consider getting them a Venturing
Training knot on their Green Background
There is a knot for the Pack Trainer for Cub Scouts. Not sure if they
have it already, and the USSP site says there's a 2 yr tenure
I had heard that there was a Unit trainER award know for BS and
Venturing, but haven't seen it. It may be one of the 'private issue'
(made up) knots, but still, I havent seen it/them yet.

I don't know how "formal" your banquets are, but ours have been
pretty laid back in the past. If your Trainers aren't above a
little silliness, you can get a package of big kids' potty training
pants and write on each one "Official Training Pants." I have a few
silly awards like this (not training pants, though) that mean more
than many of the Thank You certificates I have received. I do
appreciate the certificates but the others represent a little extra
thought and caring behind them. It sounds like that's what you're
Hope it helps. Good Luck and have FUN!!!
