Awards

Monday 16 July 2012 at 12:21 am.

Awards are a MAJOR part of the BB Boy / Girl.

Besides the Rank they achieve, the progress of a BB Boy or Girl is displayed through the Awards they earn.  You can tell from the Awards displayed on their arms what their strengths are.

Some Awards, like the Link Badge, the Bronze Scholastic Award and the NCO Proficiency Award are easy to obtain or popular, and are found in many collections.  Others are hard to earn, or awarded at National Level, or require Instructors that are hard to come by; these are rarely found in a collection, e.g., The Gold Award, The Founder's Award, The Cross for Heroism.
