In our district, the commissioner staff works hard to get awards to the
people who EARN them. We try to promote the awards, and get paperwork
filled out for everybody (especially the front-liners, who make the
program go!) because Don is right - there are many who refuse to fill
out their own paperwork, feeling that they are patting their own back.
I think the commissioner staff is a good group to do this, since they
sign off on some the requirements anyway.
Not all commissioner staffs do this however (even though it is in their
job description!) so if nobody fills out your paperwork for you, please
do it yourself, and be the person that starts doing it for the future
leaders! It seems funny that we should encourage our youth to be go-
getters and pursue awards and advancement, yet think that we are too
"grown-up" to do it ourselves. What kind of example does that set?
Remember that time registered as a youth counts toward veteran pins!
It does not count towards adult leader service stars, however. Service
stars must be worn with the appropriate colored background to signify
the area that one was registered in for the particular tenure.
