Please visit the website for all kinds of information regarding the specifics of PBE. The PBE manual and many other resources are available.
Be sure your testing levels (area, conference, union) are offering PBE testing in your chosen one of these three languages.
REMINDER: Per voted policy, answers to questions must match the language studied in, and cannot "cross over" mixing languages in an answer. (See manual "Language Variation" for more detail).
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.
