Hornaday Award????

Recommended Posts

First of all, congratulations to the young man that did all that work. It's impressive. Second, given that it's a subjective call on whether a project is adequate, why is there no feedback or other way to do a check? Sounds contrary to everything else in the G2A.

Everything is decided by a special Hornaday award committee at
Austin, TX that meets twice a year.   My son submitted his application packet in Oct, immediately after the committee met in Sept.   He had to wait until the following March for the committee to meet again, and render their decision.

Really?!?!

That doesn't jibe with the info I see on scouting.org, which says:

"The Hornaday Awards Committee meets three or four times a year. Therefore, applicants must recognize the lead time involved."

This was back in 2000.  Has probably changed since then.
