List of recipients of the Bronze Wolf Award

From ScoutWiki, For Everyone, Everywhere involved with Scouting and Guiding...
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This list of recipients of the Bronze Wolf Award includes Scouters and public figures (including three royal heads of state) who have been awarded the only commendation of the World Scout Committee. The Chief Scout of the World, Lord Baden-Powell, was anxious to avoid a multiplicity of awards, but at the same time he realized that there was a definite need for something to recognize exceptional services to world Scouting. Since the Bronze Wolf Award was first awarded in 1935, fewer than 320 have been presented. During the first twenty years of the award, only twelve awards were made, in accordance with the International Committee's decision that no more than two awards would normally be made during any two-year period. Under present guidelines, approximately one award for each 2,000,000 members worldwide is made each year.
