The S.T.W.A. (Scouting The Web Award) is a part of the Non-Profit
Organization "Scouting The Web". Scouting The Web is run by Scouts
exclusively for Scouts as a FREE service.
The S.T.W.A. was started to promote "Quality" design within
Scouting based web pages.
The award is given out to websites that are Scouting related only!
S.T.W.A. Staff reviews the web site and checks for both
Scouting content and technical merit by utilizing their Scoring Guide.
February 1998, Boy Scouts of America, Simon Kenton Council,
Venturing Crew 369 offered to host the awards for the
Scouting The Web Organization.
September 2004, www.venturingbsa.com started its move to
http://www.VenturingBSA.com. The STWA came with it. We
outgrew our old site. Currently we need an additional
$100.00 a month to keep the site running.
We would like to thank the

S.T.W.A. E-mails candidates' whos site has earned an award.
We are sorry, that due to the number of sites nominated
that we can no longer respond to all sites. Therefore,
if a site is removed from the
page and has not received the html code for their award
then they did not receive an award.
If the site has been bestowed such an honor they will be
informed of the award and the level; Bronze, Silver, or Gold. The
following is the criteria for the awards:
Sites are reviewed on an on-going bases.
Judges meet (electronicly) on the last Tuesday of the month.
The first week of the month, if any sites qualifed, awards are presented.
The Scouting The Web Award (S.T.W.A.) is designed to promote
the fundamentals of Scouting by setting a standard of high
quality web sites. It is the goal of the S.T.W.A. to promote
the growth of Scouting be setting higher standards for Scouting
related web pages.
It is hoped that by utilizing S.T.W.A. recipients as a standard
for Scouting Web Sites that Units will create higher quality
pages and therefore successfully promote the growth of the
Scouting Movement. Moreover, it is our hopes that better sites
will promote membership grouth throughout the Scouting Movement.
Who may receive the Award:
The S.T.W.A. is open to any Scouting Movement that is recognized
by the World Brotherhood of Scouting.
Though the S.T.W.A. is open to all World Brotherhood of Scouting
organizations, over 95% of our judges speak English. Therefore,
the site must be in English, or have an English translation.
Odds of earning the award:The odds
of earning the S.T.W.A. are less than 2%. The majority of sites
do not qualify. The S.T.W.A. feels it is better to present no
awards than to give a site an award that did not deserve it.
