The Silver Beaver Award is given by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America upon recommendation of the local Council to persons who have given outstanding service at a Council level to youth over an extended period of time. The local Council may present a limited number of Silver Beaver Awards each year, according to the number of registered units.
This award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the program of the Boy Scouts of America, but not limited to Scouting. Because Scouters may not nominate themselves for this award, only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest recognition a local Council can bestow upon volunteer leaders.
The Silver Beaver Recipients will be formally recognized at the Council Annual Banquet in April.
Nomination forms are due by Friday January 10, 2014. Envelopes should be addressed to:
Distinguished Awards Committee
