Red Flannel Award
The Northeast Iowa Council "Red Flannel Award" is a recognition for Winter Camping open to all Scouts and Scouters. Each Scout or Scouter has the capability to earn the Red Flannel Award four separate times. Each step progressively becomes more challenging by changing or adding new requirements. The first step must be awarded before earning the second step and so on.
The scope of this award is to earn each segment of the patch during a four year period. Although the individual could earn all four segments in one winter season, it is advised and highly recommended by the that the individual earn them over a longer period as he/she is learning new skills.
The four step process provides for the troops to learn new skills together and apply them as they are learned. It is recommended that the troops plan to provide an opportunity each year for Scouts and Scouters to earn a segment. It should also be noted, that as an individual earns segments, the individual also needs to perform tasks on his or her own and not in a patrol or troop method.
