Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Point System for recognition
Point System for recognition
Mon, 9 Nov 1998 16:01:36 +0000
Our troop wants to institute a point system which will track each boy's
participation in activities, attendance at meetings and merit badge
and rank advancement.
We were thinking of awarding a certain number of points points for
each meeting and troop activity attended, wearing of the uniform,
each merit badge earned, and rank advancement. We will then
calculate the maximum number of points available at the end of they
year and award special T shirts to the boys who achieved 85% or more of the
maximum points available. This way the boys who are not able to
attend each meeting have other ways of being recognized. It would
also give us a way to evaluate boys for various leadership positions.
My question is are any of you currently using such a system and if so
how do you weigh each of the activities in awarding points. Thanks
for your help.
