Community Organization Award

Community Organizations Knot

Boy Scout Community Organization Awards can be used by any community organization to honor its volunteers for Scouting, if approved by the BSA. A community organization is permitted to create its own neck medallion and to award a gold on purple square knot badge with a gold border.

The following organizations have developed awards under this program:

As noted above, the George Meany Award of the American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) is part of this category. Prior to August 1, 2011, recipients received a square knot specific to that award.  Future recipients, and previous recipients wishing additional square knot patches, will now wear the Community Service Organization knot shown above.
