Creating and Submitting a New Honor

NEW in 2016 -

Creating a new NAD AY Honor proposal is not an “easy Sunday afternoon” activity.  It requires a significant amount of time and other resources and must be evaluated at many stages as to whether the proposal is valid for an audience that encompasses the entire North American Division (United States, Canada, St Pierre and Miquelon, Bermuda, Guam, North Mariana Islands, Palau, The Marshall Islands, Wake Island, and the Federated States of Micronesia).  

In nearly 100 years of Pathfinder honor development, only about 400 honors have been approved.  Thus, reaching that level of excellence is a special “honor.”  However, as is evidenced by an honor's comparative scarcity, not all fun activities, skills, or lessons are “worthy” to become AY Honors.  

If you wish to learn more about the process of AY Honor Development, these guidelines are for you.
