Do you know of a Scouter that has gone above and beyond the volunteer call of duty this year?

Here are two awards that you could nominate for this outstanding scout leader to be recognized at the Council Recognition event on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022


Silver Beaver
The Silver Beaver Award was introduced in 1931 and is the most significant, council level distinguished service award for adults in the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. It is given to those who do not actively seek it.

District Award of Merit
The District Award of Merit is a council award presented to Scouters who render service of an outstanding nature at the district level in Scouting (Cub Scouts District and Scouts BSA District).

Nominees need to be a registered Scouter and should have provided noteworthy service to youth in Scouting, outside Scouting, or both. Consideration is given to a nominee’s Scouting role, attitude, and Scout Spirit.
