Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book
Adventist Youth Honors Answer Book is an instructor's guide for teaching Adventist Youth (AY) Honors to members of Pathfinder Clubs and Adventist Youth Societies.
 Honor Category Index
There are 410 honors and 13 Master Award patches that have been approved at or above the Division level. These are presented below in eight honor categories as defined by the Pathfinder organization. Each category features a different background or field color on the patch. The stage icons () indicate the percentage of honors in each category that have comprehensive answers. The stage icon does not take partially answered honors into account.
|Arts and Crafts||89||Light Blue|
|Health and Science||17||Purple|
|Outreach (including ACS/ADRA)||54||Dark Blue|
The answers here are based on the requirements as adopted for the North American Division unless otherwise noted.
This answer book is being written by Pathfinders for Pathfinders. Anyone (even non-Pathfinders) can contribute new answers or edit existing answers, and the reader is encouraged to become an active participant in the development of this continually evolving work.
 Master Awards
By completing 7 eligible honors one can also qualify for a Master Award patch which recognizes mastery in the category. The patches are larger than regular honor patches and reflect the subject matter. The Master Awards (with requirements listed) currently available are:

 Guidelines for Contributors
If you wish to contribute, welcome! Here are some guidelines.
The requirements for every honor have already been entered, with the exception of the newest honors with unreleased requirements. Instruction for meeting the requirement, or an answer to the question posed by the requirement should follow the requirement. Look at some of the existing answers to see how they are structured before you begin. Press the "edit this page" link to see how wiki markup is done, and be sure to check out the "editing help" link that appears at the bottom of a page being edited.
Please do not copy content from copyrighted sources without securing permission first. This especially applies to the answers in the official Answer Books by Leland Davis. It also applies to content that other people have written for various Pathfinder websites and to images you find on the Internet. Please read the Pathfinder Wiki:Copyrights section for more information. It is OK to gather information from these resources, and you are encouraged to consult multiple sources - but with few exceptions, you must put answers in your own words.
Resources in the public domain can be incorporated here without any constraints. This includes original works by the US government and anything published in the US before 1923.
You may use any images you find in the Wikimedia Commons.
You also may copy content (modified or verbatim) from Wikipedia, but please leave a note in the Community Portal when you do this so the administrators can import the edit history from Wikipedia (that's how it's done without violating the license). Be aware though that many Wikipedia articles are written at a very high level, often requiring a college education (or medical degree!) to fully understand.
Keep your audience in mind when writing. Try to use language that is geared toward the typical Pathfinder who will be taught using this information. That means you should write at the fifth-grade level for honors that are designated as skill level 1, and eighth-grade level for honors that are designated at skill levels 2 and 3. It's OK to use technical terms as long as they are explained in the text.
