Adult Recognition Awards for especially valued service to the Scouts Association of Australia are made annually to Members and Supporters who have given this service over a considerable period.

To be considered for an Award, a person must carry out the responsibilities of his/her designated role to the highest standard, promote teamwork and a positive attitude among fellow adults in Scouting, be a Scouting enthusiast and provide a lead to other adults in Scouting, and have ideas for the future development of Scouting. For the higher Awards, a person must contribute to the wider Association through involvement in activities beyond the level of responsibilities normally expected of their role.

Recommendations may be initiated by any Member or formation of the Scout Movement, but must follow the process adopted by each state Branch.

Certificate and distinctive cloth emblems (for wearing on the uniform) are issued with the awards as appropriate. A distinctive pin for wearing in civilian dress is issued together with the first Award presented. This is a silver lapel badge based on the Scouts Australia national logo.
