Sea Scout Quartermaster Award

The Quartermaster Award is the highest award in Sea Scouts and is as important as the Eagle Scout Award. It stands for excellence and is a reminder that as a ship needs a rudder, a compass, and a moving force to reach its destination, so an individual must be physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight to achieve worthwhile goals in life. It represents fulfillment. It results from a young adult’s determination to reach goals that he or she has set and achieved in spite of difficulties along the way.

The award is rich in symbolism. The blue ribbon stands for loyalty and country. The compass suggests the importance of carefully chosen direction in life. The wheel reminds us that we are the guide of our own future and that we must persevere with self-discipline. The Scout badge, the emblem of purposeful brotherhood, has challenged and strengthened the lives of more than 40 million men. It shows Sea Scouts are an important part of the Scouting tradition. The anchor reminds us that a truly worthy life must be anchored in duty to God. This badge of color, beauty, and symbolism, but most of all, challenge, awaits every Sea Scout who has the determination to achieve excellence.
