About this Recognition:
The National Catholic
Committee on Scouting®, acting through the local diocese or
eparchy, may award the St. George emblem to members of the laity
and clergy, Scouters and non-Scouters alike, who have made significant
and outstanding contributions to the spiritual development of Catholic
youths through Scouting.
The recipients of the emblem are to be sought after and selected
by an active committee of the (arch)diocese/eparchy. This committee
is to be newly-appointed each year by the diocesan Scout chaplain
Nomination forms should give a detailed description of how the
nominee provides outstanding contribution to the spiritual development
of Catholic youths through Scouting in the Catholic Church. It is
improper to nominate oneself or one's spouse.
General Scouting achievements do not qualify a person
to receive the St. George emblem. The Boy Scouts of America has
district, council, regional and national awards for such recognition.
