Emblem Objectives

This award is targeted to the Brownie (GSUSA) and Tenderheart (AHG) youth, grades 2-3. This award helps the young person develop as a Christian member of their family and parish and helps discover the presence of God in their daily life. Parents work with the youth as the advisor to help the youth discover their family Christian identity.

How to Earn the Emblem

  2. Complete the workbooks. The book is designed for the girl to work together with her troop and with her family. 
  3. Complete the forms in the back of the workbooks. Make sure to get all the required signatures. 
  4. Order Emblems. Send the forms and payment ($11 + shipping: $2 for first set, $.25 each additional set) to the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Committee on Scouting to arrange to get your emblems:
