Receiving the Award

Sea Scouts teamwork

If you receive a successful assessment result, well done! You have earned The President’s Award.

  • A signed certificate will be mailed to the Regional Office, and either you or your Scouter can fetch it from there.
  • A fabric badge is available to purchase from the Scout Shop, in the colour of the award level you received. The President’s Award also sells a metal pin badge, which you may wear on a school uniform, for approximately R100.
  • You may be awarded the badge during any normal Scout meeting. Gold recipients may also be invited by The President’s Award to an awards ceremony, held annually. You may wear your Scout uniform to this ceremony.
  • The placement of the badge is detailed in SSA’s Uniform Policy and Badge Charts. A recipient is allowed to wear the award until the age of 25, or until they are no longer a Rover.
