Special Awards

You can add and update the types of awards that can be earned by members of your troop.  From the Site Configuration menu, select Special Awards.

Click Add a New Item to add a new award to this list.

Enter the name of the award.

If you do not want to enter the requirements for this award, click Save & Exit.

If you do want to add the requirements, click Add Requirement.

The Requirement Code is the number of the requirement.  In some cases, a requirement will have sub-requirements that each have a letter assigned; in that case, enter the number and letter, separated by a period, like this: "1.a".

The system will always sort the requirements for an award on Requirement Code.

The Description should be the full text of this requirement.

Click Save & Exit to save this requirement.

From this list you can update or delete individual requirements.

Click Save & Exit to return to the list of award types.

On the main page, there is also a button to Delete Unused Awards.

This will take you to a page that only shows the awards that have never been used by your troop.

Put a checkmark next to each item you wish to delete.  Put a checkmark in the box in the heading row to select all items currently displayed.

Press Delete Selected Items to delete them.

On the main page, you will also see a button to View Master Award List.

This will take you to a page that displays a list compiled by TroopWebHost containing all of the awards recognized nationally by the BSA™.

This list may contain awards that you already have in your troop's list.

If you see an item that you wish to add to your troop's list, click Add To My List on this row.  Or press Add Missing Items To My List to let the system find all items that you do not currently have and add them to your list.

Update My List With BSA Codes will not add any items to your list.  It will try to match items already on your list to the master awards list and, if they do not already have a BSA code, apply the appropriate BSA code.  The BSA Code is required for Internet Advancement.
