 Bronze Pelican Award

The Bronze Pelican is awarded annually to recognize adult service to the Catholic youth through Scouting. The Bronze Pelican recognizes the recipient's outstanding contribution to the spiritual development of Catholic youth in the program of the Boy Scouts of America.

Bronze Pelican Criteria:

  • A Nominee must have been a registered and active Scouter for each of the past three years AND completed the National Catholic Leadership Development Course during the past three years.
  • A Scouter does not earn the Bronze Pelican Emblem but is recommended by another person by application, without the nominee’s knowledge, to the WPC CS Committee to determine if the nominee satisfies the criteria for this award and for submission to the NY Archdiocese Catholic Scouting for acceptance. Persons earning this Award will be notified by end of March with the specifics (date, time, logistics) of presentation on Emblem Sunday at St. Patrick's.
  • The Bronze Pelican is a diocesan award with diocesan requirements. In the Archdiocese of New York, the Bronze Pelican is a prerequisite for earning the St. George Medal. Recipients are not eligible to receive the BSA Adult Religious square knot.
  • The emblem is presented at the Emblem Sunday Awards Recognition Ceremony at St. Patrick’s Cathedral usually the 4th Sunday in April or the 1st Sunday in May.
  • Deadline for nomination, signed by the nominee’s Parish Pastor to acknowledge the nominee is a Parishioner in good standing, is prior to February 28. The St. George Medal is purchased by the person submitting the nomination or the Scouter’s Unit.
  • The person nominating an adult and the nominee will be notified by the CS Committee during the month of March with specifics of Emblem Sunday at St. Patrick’s.
