Adult Recognition for BOY SCOUTS: The Archdiocese of New York, through the Archdiocese Catholic Committee on Scouting, recognizes adults who are actively engaged in assisting the development of Catholic Boy Scouting in two ways.

  1. The first of these two is the Bronze Pelican. This emblem was created within the Archdiocese of New York, with the first being awarded in 1950. It is an Archdiocesan Award, not a Scout Award.
  2. The second and senior emblem is the Saint George, named after the patron Saint of Scouting. The St. George award was created by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting to recognize significant contributions to the development of Catholic Scouting. It was first presented within the Archdiocese of New York in 1957.



The Bronze Pelican and the St. George Awards are presented in recognition of the significant contributions of an individual in integrating Catholicism and Scouting.
