Quality Unit Awards
Circle Ten Council’s new Quality Unit and District Award is the council’s planning, performance and recognition program designed to encourage and reward the success of our units and districts. It is meant to encourage excellence in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
The new Quality Unit and District standards represent a vision of good Scouting for units and districts and that is why Circle Ten Council has included the key elements of unit and district success in our new 2021-2023 Council Strategic Plan.
Quality program delivery is key to retention of our Scouts and their families in Circle Ten Council. Each type of unit (pack, troop, crew) has specific measures to help a unit and district gauge their success. Your unit commissioner and district commissioner team will use the Quality Unit criteria to help guide your unit and provide useful information, tools and resources to help ensure a successful program.
Virtual Friends of Scouting Event
If you missed the "Virtual Friends of Scouting" event that took place on Tuesday, March 2nd at 7:00 p.m. or haven’t made a pledge, please click the button below to view the virtual presentation.
It was an exciting program with a message from two of our most recent Eagle Scouts, one of whom is one of the first female Eagle Scouts in Circle Ten. You will hear from our Scout executive and council president on how we were able to "Scout On" in a COVID-19 pandemic. There will be testimonials from community leaders that you will recognize, as well as highlights from 2020 showing our young Scouts in action, followed by a keynote address from Mr. Eric Johnson, Mayor of Dallas.
On behalf of all the young people served by Circle Ten Council, we thank you for your continued support. Please join us and enjoy the show!
