SILVER BEAVER AWARD NOMINATIONS DUE JANUARY 31, 2019
 
The Silver Beaver Award is the council level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Do you know a Scouter who has made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council?  
 
The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award a Council can bestow upon a volunteer Scouter in recognition of distinguished service to youth within the council’s service area.
 
Nominees will not only be judged on their outstanding volunteer service with the BSA, but their overall service to youth within our council. The actual recipients will be selected by a volunteer committee comprised of Silver Beaver recipients.

The awards will be presented at the Council Recognition Dinner on March 27, 2019.
 
Nominations are due in the Council Office by January 31, 2019.  You can download a nomination form HERE
