Awards & Recognition

The presentation of awards and recognition to Guiders is a vital way of recognizing their contributions in a formal way. Awards are given to honour the recipient. Everyone is encouraged to present them regularly to show how much our Guiders are appreciated. Never wait until a job is finished to offer recognition. Please be sure to show recognition and thanks in many other informal ways over and above these official awards.

NS Awards are moving to an online portal through Survey Monkey Apply. You may be familiar with Survey Monkey Apply from the national Scholarship or Safe Guide applications. Information on available Awards can be found on Member Zone.

Apply for awards using the online portal.
