Top Gun Award  

 

CRITERIA FOR WINNING THE TOP GUN AWARD

The TOP GUN AWARD was initiated in 2002 to recognize those students who exhibit the ability to execute a multitude of survival skills with precision.

To be considered for the TOP GUN AWARD a student must exhibit outstanding character, determination.  resourcefulness, creativity and a positive attitude.  All criteria must be met in order to receive the award. Many classes we conduct do not yield a top gun as one MUST excel across the board in all survival subjects while exhibiting a survival attitude.
