This Award is meant for All scouts, Venturer scouts.
(Discontinued Dec. 2012)
The Heroism Award is presented to Scouts and Scouters that have saved or attempted to save a life at minimal personal risk.
This award may be awarded to a youth member or adult leader who has demonstrated heroism and skill in saving or attempting to save life while registered in the Boy Scouts of America.
If it appears that the risk involved was merely in the performance of duty or the meeting of an obligation because of responsibility to supervise and give leadership to the person or people whose lives were saved, then recognition will not be given. The BSA National Court of Honor determines from evidence presented which lifesaving award, if any, shall be made. The court will give consideration to resourcefulness and demonstrated skills used in rescue methods.
Knot Description: Red on red knot on white background with white border.
