Journey to Excellence District Award - Gold - 2011

"Scouting's Journey to Excellence" is the BSA's council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils. It replaced the Centennial Quality Awards Program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA."

"Excellent" work, Lake Minnetonka District!

The Journey to Excellence program is Scouting's council recognition program. In 2011, our district qualified in all 12 program categories selected by Northern Star Council, which earned us the "Gold" Journey to Excellence Award.

Congratulations, and thank you, to all our unit and district Scouters for making our Scouting program a success. We look forward to working with this year, as well, to continue this high level of programming for our youth.

Please remember that this is a unit self-improvement tool and is not to be used for other purposes such as unit-to-unit competition as we are trying to foster growth in all our units. We encourage units that did not qualify - or that qualified for lower levels - to contact those units that qualified for gold to find ways to improve their program so they can qualify for a higher level in 2012 as well.
