Scouts and Venturers are breaking world records and accomplishing incredible feats in the outdoors almost everyday – so why not honor those stand-out kids in a big way?
Starting now through Wednesday, November 16, you can give inspiring Scouts and Venturers the major kudos they deserve by nominating them for the 2017 Outdoor Inspiration Awards.
What Is the Outdoor Inspiration Awards?
The seventh annual Outdoor Inspiration Awards, presented by Adidas Outdoor, will take place January 11, 2017 at 6:00 during Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. This special event celebrates the extraordinary passion, dedication and inspiration within the outdoor industry.
A true outdoor event, the Outdoor Inspiration Awards celebrate those that inspire and encourage others in their communities to enjoy, participate in and support outdoor activities and the outdoor industry.
How to Nominate a Scout or Venturer
Nominations are now open to recognize outstanding Individuals, Retailers, Manufacturers, Non-Profits and Youth category sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. The nomination period will remain open through November 16, 2016.
Fill out the Outdoor Inspiration Awards Nomination Form under the ‘Boy Scouts of America, Youth’ category.
The Youth category is designed to recognize an outstanding youth (between 16-21 years old) that shows leadership and passion for the outdoors and is an inspiration to us all.
Consider how a potential nominee shows leadership in their schools and communities, shares their sport and passion with others, and goes above and beyond to protect and preserve the environment.
Before you submit your nominee, consider all angles of inspiration criteria – impact, creativity, service, technology, philanthropy, engagement, longevity, sustainability, activities, adversity and awareness. Nominees will be selected based on those criteria by a selection panel of sponsoring brand leaders, industry manufacturers, specialty retailers, SNEWS and industry associations.
Nominations are due no later than November 16, 2016, so nominate an outstanding Scout or Venturer for this year’s Outdoor Inspiration Awards today! Visit the Outdoor Retailer website for detailed guidelines and to submit nominations.
