The U.S. Army's Youth Certificate of Recognition

The U.S. Army recognizes outstanding youth in the civilian and military community with the Youth Certificate of Recognition.

The certificate may be used to recognize youth who achieve the Eagle Scout or the Girl Scout Gold Award; demonstrate acts of heroism; extraordinary academic, athletic or public service achievements; or other accomplishments of excellence.
