The BoatUS National Flagship Application is now available for download on the beta Sea Scout website. Sea Scout Ships that apply for the National Flagship will automatically be considered for the Western Region Flagship.
All Sea Scout Ships are strongly encouraged to apply for the National Flagship. A strong application should tell your Ship’s story over the course of a year.
Creative applications have included video clips from the youth, automated PowerPoint Presentation, and are well organized. The application can include testimonials from Sea Scouts, highlight service projects, and show your Sea Scout Ship in action. More importantly, do not forget to show Sea Scouts have fun being Sea Scouts. Photos and video clips are also excellent to include in your application.
Regardless if your Sea Scout Ship is applying for National Flagship, every Ship should complete the Journey to Excellence scorecard, available on Scouting.org. JTE is a way to evaluate your program.
The mission of Sea Scouts, BSA is to ensure every Sea Scout has a quality experience in Scouting. JTE is an excellent way to look at activities the Sea Scout enjoy, advancement that was achieved, and sharpen your Ship’s course for 2016.
