My two cents as a scouting lead:
I, personally, would like a scouting-based award in that it would increase the appreciation for scouts (my team has a good culture surrounding scouting, but I know a lot of other teams don’t).
That said, my concern parallels that of many others (both in this thread and the prior thread) - how is it being judged? What are the criteria for the award?
As a strong proponent of the good ol’ paper + excel scouting system, I echo the concern that the award will only be given based on the system implemented, regardless of accuracy, willingness to scout, and simplicity.
Another concern that I have is on the more practical side - smaller teams with less scouts might not have the time for their scouting leads to talk to a judge, even if the system they have is amazing. Pulling from my experience as scouting lead, time isn’t always plentiful, and I have 20+ people that I can delegate tasks to. With a team of only 7-8, I can’t imagine when they’d be able to talk to a judge.
TL;DR: I like the idea, but I’d want a lot more clarity on implementation.
