The award process will remain, at all times, strictly confidential. No communication will be made to nominees until a final decision on the outcome of their nomination has been made.
If the award is not to be granted, the person who proposed the nomination will be notified in writing or another suitable medium directly by Chair of the State Youth Council. If deemed appropriate by the Selection Project Patrol, this letter may include reasons why the award was not granted and any aspects that may lead to a changed decision in the future.
For successful nominees, finalists will receive an invitation to the ceremony following the assessment of applications at the beginning of September. The scout titled “Scout of the Year” will be kept confidential until the award ceremony.
