Yep, every group is going to want to have an equal title/order/award. 
That's why I'm a big advocate for some awards to have categories, such as the Sable Thistle, 
for just that cause... An Optio award in the category of '_______'.  
(guess that won't work though, since the Optio is a mini-Centurian).   

If Sable Crane had categories, we could do away with the Compass Rose, 
as you could give a Sable Crane in the area of 'Children's Activities'.  

While I don't begrudge them honor and awards, soon we'll see an exact mirror 
of adult awards being created for children and youths.
