In another thread fgoodwin has stolen my thunder, but yes, BSA has approved the newly created religious award for Unitarian Universalist youth.
At the Feb 8th National meetings in Irving, the Religious Relationships (RR) subcommittee approved the curriculum proposed by the newly created Unitarian Universalist Scouters Organization (UUSO), pending a review of referenced literature. The referenced items all had been approved under the previous emblem with no issue, and so we fully expect final approval sometime this month. I was waiting to hear of a formal approval before I posted to this forum, but fgoodwin now says that P.R.A.Y has acknowledged the event.
The UUSO is not formally associated with the UUA but is an independent organization of Scouters. A memorandum of Mutual Support between BSA and UUSO was signed last year and UUSO is now a voting member of the RR subcommittee. Since then we have been working with the RR subcommittee to gain approval for the new curriculum.
Currently, the UUSO is arranging to print the new pamphlet and manufacture the new medals. We hope to have a website up soon with the requirements and contact information. The new awards program will be formally kicked off at the Jamboree this summer.
If anyone has specific questions, I would be happy to reply to posts or to private messages. We are very glad to be back in the tent!
