Anniversary Month Contest: 2024

Annual Contest Showcases Scouting In Our Communities

On Feb. 8, 2024, we will celebrate the 114th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. Since its founding in 1910, more than 130 million young men and women have participated in the BSA’s youth programs, supported by more than 35 million adult volunteers dedicated to advancing the BSA’s mission.

The Montana Council organizes an Anniversary Month Contest throughout February to commemorate Scouting and its positive impact. The event encourages units to participate in their communities, showcasing that Scouting families are actively contributing to civic engagement and striving to make the world a better place.

More Info + Submission Form

The unit (one Pack, one Troop, one Crew) that submits the best information (photos, news articles, or videos) about their activities will receive special awards, including paid luncheon tickets for two leaders and two Scouts to Montana Council’s Annual Awards luncheon during the Annual Convention and a Troop plaque and Scout Bucks for each registered youth!

Any Montana Council unit can earn a beautiful purple Honor Unit streamer for their unit flagpole by completing any TWO of the following five activities during February:

  1. Wear your uniform in public (to school, a parade, for a flag ceremony, or to secure a proclamation from a governmental body)
  2. Participate in a Scout Sunday/Sabbath/Jumuah Service
    • Scout Sunday: Feb. 11, 2024
    • Scout Shabbat: Feb. 9-10, 2024
    • Scout Jumuah: Feb. 9, 2024
  3. Do a service project
  4. Submit a 30-second video, in uniform, of “Why we like Scouts”
  5. Write a letter to the editor about how Scouting has benefited the community
  6. Create a public window display

One of the best ways to spread enthusiasm about Scouting is through visibility in our communities. By demonstrating how transformative and positive Scouting is, we create ripples that radiate outward, inspiring others to join.
