"Journey to Excellence” is the BSA’s new performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of units, districts, and councils. It is replacing the Centennial Quality Awards Program as a means of encouraging excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
The program runs on a calendar year (January 1st – December 31st) and units will turn in their scorecards as directed by the Council. There are different scorecards for each unit type and units score points in numerous categories.
If you have a question about Journey to Excellence, please contact your District Executive or District Commissioner.
