General Information

Adult recognitions are given to adults for outstanding service to youth through both their church and one of the national youth-serving agencies (Boy Scouts of America, Camp Fire USA, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., American Heritage Girls).

Adult awards are not earned like youth awards: An outside party must nominate an adult to receive an award by submitting the required applications, letter of recommendation, and resume of activities. Self and spouse nominations will not be accepted. Nominations cannot be made posthumously.

The adult award package contains a medal that can be worn around the neck, a personalized color certificate suitable for framing and the following also contain a matching lapel pin: God and Service, Good Shepherd, Lamb, Shofar and Building Faith in Youth.

There is an approval process for adult nominations. Please review the approval process before planning your presentation ceremony.

Please note: Not all adult awards are handled by P.R.A.Y. Please search by faith for more information specific to your faith.
