A 100-year-old organization dedicated to "Being Prepared," is being honored with a new postage stamp. The U.S. Boy Scouts stamp is being unveiled at the National Scout Jamboree in Virginia.

The Boy Scouts of America is celebrating its 100th year of building young men's characters and encouraging them to experience the great outdoors.

The new $.44 stamp is meant to capture the organization's spirit of adventure. The design depicts two scouts: one carrying a backpack, and the other, in silhouette, surveying the landscape.

An estimated 30,000 boy scouts from across the country are expected to attend the stamp's unveiling ceremony in Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, as part of the National Scout Jamboree.
