State Rover Commissioner's Award

This award is open to all Rovers and Rover Advisers with nominations accepted from anyone in Scouting, outside of the Rover Section.

This award is designed to recognise those individuals who have done something exceptional to benefit the Crew or Scouting. It may be someone who has organised a hugely successful District or Group event. They can be nominated by Region Commissioners, District Commissioners, Group Leaders, Leaders within the Scout Group or anyone else in Scouting who is not a Rover or Rover Advisor.

There is an award in the Rover Section for Rovers and Advisers who provide outstanding service to the Rover Section over a sustained period of time, this new award is designed to capture those one off events of brilliance.

If you would like to nominate a Rover or Rover Adviser please send the State Commissioner for Rover Scouts an outline of what they have done, why you think it is an outstanding contribution and how Scouting or Rovering benefited from this person's actions. The Award closes on June 30th each year, covers the period 1st July to 30th June and the awardee/s will be announced on World Scout Day - 1st August. There will be a presentation at Rover Dinner in October each year.
