Ron mentioned the Congressional Award and I thought it appropriate to
repost a past contribution to give new members of the list some more
information about the award:

Subject: Congessional Awards
Do your older boys need a new goal to reach. Then try for a Congressional
award. Participants, ages 14-23, earn a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award by
setting and reaching personal goals in four areas: voluntary public service
(helping others and the community); personal development (of interests,
social and employment skills); physical fitness (improving quality of life);
expedition/exploration (a wilderness or venture experience).
Bronze: age14; 210-hours (for four program areas) over at 7 months
Silver: age 16; 420-hours over at 15 months
Gold: age 18; 840-hours over at 24 months
Bronze and Silver recipients receive their awards from their senators and
member(s) of Congress. Gold award recipients receive their awards annually
in Washington, D.C. from Congressional leadership.
