 +======= Release 5.9 - Key Features ======
 +===== Special Awards =====
 +You can now record that a youth has earned an award outside of the normal Program. E.g., it could be a National award such as the Medal of the Maple, or an Area recognition,​ or could just reflect that the youth has earned a second or third language strip.
 +Special Awards are created by drilling down to the youth (e.g., "​Account"​ | "​Scouts"​),​ where you'll find a new "​Special Awards"​ section. In addition to the name and description,​ you can optionally provide leader-only notes and can pick an existing image to use with the award. You can format the description and Leaders'​ notes in the same way you can format Events and Personal/​Section Notes.
 +Special Awards show up in the "​history"​ and "​badges earned"​ reports, and via a text search, and are included in the youth'​s Personal Record Sheet.
 +Special Awards differ from regular Program badges/​awards in that they don't have requirements that can be progressively earned. I.e., when you create a Special Award, it is by definition complete and automatically assigned to a single youth. The ability to create a custom badges that all youth can independently work towards is a separate feature that is on the feature request list!
 +===== Miscellaneous Enhancements =====
 +  * Troop/Pack notes now are checked when you do a text search
 +===== Bug Fixes =====
 +  * The notes tooltip stopped appearing after navigating away from one badge to another
 +  * Youth/​Parents could send themselves welcome messages
 +  * Switching youth while looking at "My Bookmarks"​ or "My Notes" wasn't refreshing the report
