Boy Scouts of America, Bronze Big Horn Award
Bronze Big Horn
Bronze Bighorn Award
The Big Horn is a sure-footed mountain sheep and is the only animal in the world that climbs to the highest points in the world while still remaining on the ground.

The Central Regional Explorer Cabinet felt that this is symbolic of many individuals involved in Exploring. They, therefore, developed and instituted this award to recognize both youth and adults, who have held the highest ideals and purposes, and have climbed to Exploring's greatest heights while still remaining sure-footed in their actions in working for the betterment of the program.


1. The Candidate must have been involved in Exploring as an Explorer or an adult for at least one year.
2. The candidate must have held some position/office in the unit or on the council level.
3. The candidate must have shown exceptional dedication and given outstanding service and/or leadership to the Exploring Program and to youth on the unit and/or council level.

Note: Council service is not mandatory for eligibility. Outstanding unit service is sufficient.
