Dan Beard ESA Scoutmaster Award

The Dan Beard Eagle Scout Association (ESA) recognizes Scoutmasters who have provided opportunity, experience, leadership, and guidance in advancing our youth to Eagle Scouts. The Dan Beard ESA Scoutmaster Award was created to recognize the influence that these Scoutmasters have shown in being mentors and role models to the youth of the Dan Beard Council (DBC). The recipient(s) will be recognized at an appropriate event.

  • Was the Scoutmaster of a Troop when a youth achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
  • Provided the development of youth leadership within the troop.
  • Projected a positive image of Scouting in the community.
