Six Scouts were presented with the Supernova Award
, the new recognition that's part of the Boy Scouts of America's STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiative, at the February Roundtable in the New Horizons District.
For their first Nova award, Scouts earn the distinctive Nova award patch. After that, a Scout can earn three more Nova awards, each one recognized with a separate pin-on device that attaches to the patch. The patch and the three devices represent each of the four STEM topics.
