The Anahaw Award an award of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines. It is a metal Anahaw leaf that is pinned on the ribbon of the Eagle Scout Medal. The award is similar to the Boy Scouts of America's use of Eagle Palms for their Eagle Scout Award. The name derives from Anahaw, a Filipino common name of palm trees in the genus Livistona.

After a Scout has earned the Eagle Scout Rank and before reaching the age of 17 years, he can go on to pursue the Anahaw Award. In addition to the 21 Merit Badges for the Eagle Scout Rank, the Anahaw Award may be granted as follows:

  • For any 2 additional Specialist Rating after earning the Eagle Scout Rank - Bronze Anahaw Award.
  • For any 2 additional Specialist Rating after earning the Bronze Anahaw Award - Silver Anahaw Award.
  • For any 2 additional Specialist Rating after earning the Silver Anahaw Award - Gold Anahaw Award.

The Bronze Anahaw Award shall be given only after at least three-(3) months of active Scouting as an Eagle Scout. Subsequent Anahaw Awards may be made at intervals not less the four-(4) months of tenure following the conferment of an Anahaw Award of lower grade.
