The Scouting Memorabilia Display Recognition is presented by ISCA to help
recognize Scouters who have taken that extra step in our hobby of sharing
their Memorabilia with others.
We all have "our collection" which in part is a step in the
preservation of our Scouting Heritage. For many of us, this collection is
at home in binders, boxes or even a bunch of plastic lunch bags. But those
who take the extra step in sharing that information with others, it seems
appropriate that they deserve some extra recognition.
ISCA has developed a Certificate (download links on the right side of
this page) that can be used to recognize Scouters if their display (when
entered into a display competition) is deemed worthy of competition.
Typically, this would include a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in any number of
categories, but the award structure is really at the discretions of those
running the event. ISCA would normally expect display competitions to
occur at trade-o-rees and/or auctions, however, they can occur anywhere it
is deemed desirable to have one (i.e. Scout-O-Ramas, Order of the Arrow
Section Conclaves, etc.)
Display categories have been developed in part based on the Scouting Collecting
codes that everyone selects when they become a member of ISCA and are
shown in the "Display Competition Entry Form" (also downloadable
on the right of this page).
Also downloadable is the "Memorabilia Display Judging Form."
There are five standard judging criteria and an optional category may also
be added at the discretion of the event organizers.
The judging categories and a short definition of each is as follows:
