Supernova Award

The SUPERNOVA Award program is similar to the BSA Hornaday Award Program.  The basic requirements include earning certain academic pins for Cub Scouts, activity badges for Webelos and merit badges for Boy Scouts, plus completing additional, more rigorous STEM-related requirements.  The Venturing requirements are based on more independent achievement and teaching activities.  SUPERNOVA is designed to encourage and recognize more in-depth achievement in STEM.  The SUPERNOVA awards are medals on neck ribbons.

STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can't help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.
