Awards

The Scout Association of Maldives has a national awards system for recognizing good service, length of service and special acts of heroism and bravery, courage or endurance, and devotion to duty under suffering.

Being a national system affords it prestige and allows all applications to be considered objectively according to national criteria. Except in the case of recognition of length of adult service, awards are not made automatically, and proper, detailed justification must be made in every case.
