K3’s were recently sent a packet with a letter about the Lange challenge, JTE, and Scout Advancement. To summarize:
What is the “Lange Challenge?” This is a very generous challenge grant that our Council receives with our help. It is a program that honors the memory of Alexander “Skip” Lange and his belief that an active Scout is likely to stay in Scouting and earn their Eagle Scout Award.
In order to qualify for the grant we need Units to:
1.) Send in your 2019 weekend camping experiences conducted this year, as well as those your PLC anticipates conducting between now and December 31, 2019. The goal is that 65% or more of our Troops are participating in 8 or more short term weekend experiences through out the course of the year. Send your camping outing list via email to email@example.com.
2.) Check your advancement records against the form sent in the mail. Submit any changes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Continue to submit advancements as normal going forward.
3.) JTE – Please fill out the JTE Scorecard for 2019 and turn in with your recharter paperwork.
