The STEM Star Patch is an embroidered emblem bearing STEM icons and the Nova Award patch outline. Cub Scouts has a blue center, Scouts BSA a red center, and Venturing/Sea Scouts a green center.

The unit leader must provide their e-signature for approval with this application.  Once completed here, patches will be mailed on a by-weekly basis to the Scout (or unit leader). The emblem is worn on the right pocket of the uniform shirt as temporary.   The patches, once in hand, can be formally presented at a Pack meeting, Court of Honor, or awards ceremony if desired.   

Some Scouts will find that they have earned the award already.  Congrats!   You can earn this award only once and please spread the word so that others will take on the challege.   Thanks for being a STAR on STEM  in our Council!

We appreciate the support of Daugherty Business Solutions to sponsor the patch and making them available for free to our Scouts.
