The award is made by the National Court of Honor and the recipient must be a registered adult member of the Boy Scouts of America.

Award

The award consists of a silver antelope suspended from a white and yellow ribbon worn around the neck. Recipients may wear the corresponding square knot, with a white strand over a yellow strand, on the BSA uniform.

History

The award was created in 1942 and first issued in 1943. A yellow-white-yellow ribbon bar was used for informal uniform wear until 1946, when ribbon bars were replaced by the current knot insignia.
