The Venturing Leadership Award is presented by councils, areas, regions, and the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America to Venturers and Venturing Advisors who have made exceptional contributions to Venturing and who exemplify the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

The Venturing Leadership Award was briefly unavailable to adult recipients, but has been restored as a recognition for adults as of the 2015 National Annual Meeting of the Boy Scouts of America.

Council Venturing Leadership Awards Presented during the NEPA Council Annual Recognition Dinner. 

Our Council is permitted to award only two (2) VLA's per year. To be considered for the award, a youth must:
•    Be registered and involved as a Venturer for at least one year.
•    Be a youth member when nominated for the award.
•    Hold a leadership position or an office at the unit, district, council, area, region, or national level (as appropriate for the level of the award presented).
•    Show exceptional dedication and give outstanding leadership and service to Venturing and to Venturers (on the level appropriate for the award).
