The Bronze Award

Background and Purpose of the Bronze Award:
One of the strengths of the Venturing program is its ability to meet the interest of all Venturers.
Sometimes Venturers  like to investigate new, different areas, Variety in a crew always seems
 to make it more fun to go to meetings and outings. Also Venturers probably have many interests
 or would like to have more. Because of that desire, and to provide a pathway to many
different experiences, the Venturing Bronze Awards Program is offered. Venturers can earn their
 crew's specialty Bronze Award of all five Bronze Awards.

The five different Venturing Bronze Awards are Arts and Hobbies, Outdoor, Sea Scouting (Ordinary Award),
 Sports, and Youth Ministries. All five Bronze Awards contain the common elements of experience,
 learning and skill, and sharing your experiences and skills with others. Earning at least one
Bronze Award is required for the Venturing  G.O.L.D. Award. The Bronze Award is designed
 as the entry-level award for a Venturer so that they can acquire
usable skills that will carry them along the trail to the Venturing Silver Award.

Requirements for the Bronze Awards:
For the Arts and Hobbies, Sports, or Youth Ministries, a Venturer must complete at least nine of
twelve requirements established for each of those three areas. For Outdoor, Venturers must
 complete at least four requirements.
For Sea Scout, Sea Scouts must earn the Ordinary Rank. To earn a specific Bronze Award such
as the Arts and Hobbies Bronze Award, all completed requirements must be Arts and Hobbies requirements.
Venturers can earn their crew's specialty Bronze Award or all five Bronze Awards.

Procedures for the Bronze Awards:
Bronze candidates may have their crew Advisor or a specialty consultant approve or sign off on the
completed requirement. Requirements for the Arts and Hobbies, Sports, and Youth Ministries Bronze can
 be found in the Silver Award Guide. The requirements of the Outdoor Bronze Award can be found in
 the Ranger Guidebook. There is no committee review for the Venturing Bronze Award.


The Bronze Award is available in two formats.  The original award is a colorful,
campaign-style ribbon that may be worn on the Sea Scouting or Venturing uniform.
 If all five are earned, all five may be worn on the uniform. Each ribbon has an icon
 representing the area it was earned in superimposed on the ribbon, shown at the top of this page.
