The James M. Stewart Good Citizenship Award

Bryan on Scouting/Scouting Magazine highlight how Scouts can earn the James M. Stewart Good Citizenship Award.  Here is a peek at the story:
In a 1980 speech, Stewart called the Scout Oath, “40 words … that can make an awfully big difference.”

Stewart died in 1997, but his spirit of citizenship endures in a number of tangible ways, including the James M. Stewart Good Citizenship Award, available to members of Scouts BSA.

The award, launched in 2003, was created through a partnership between the BSA, the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation, the Stewart family and the BSA’s Penn’s Woods Council (now part of the Laurel Highlands Council).
