Kudus - Star Patrol - 2012

The “Star Awards” is an evaluation system used to recognise Troops and Patrols who are meeting the aims of the association. The Scout methods used are the tools that make scouting different from any other youth organisation. The “Star Awards” also serve as an essential tool for Scouters, Commissioners, Provincial and National Staff to identify weak areas so that appropriate corrective action can be taken.

Star Awards evaluate activities completed between 1 October and 30 September every year.
