Salvation Army Youth of the Western Territory

2008-09 Standard of Achievement

The Territorial Youth Department has announced the Standard of Achievement winners for Corps Cadets and Junior Soldiers—2008-2009. The Standard of Achievement is the highest possible award a corps can earn for either Corps Cadets or Junior Soldiers. It requires extra activities, effort and energy by the corps officers and leaders. There are three possible awards for each program: blue (the highest), red and yellow. Each corps earning this annual award receives a plaque to display in the corps building and an engraved star plate to place on the plaque.
