Golden Spoon Photo Contest

Scout cooking 1

The Dan Beard Council, Boy Scouts of America would like to invite all of our Scouts to participate in our Golden Spoon Photo Contest through our Scouting At Home video series. We know a lot of our Scouts love to camp, and where there is camping, there is usually a campfire with yummy food! We are asking our Scouts to prepare their favorite camp-style cooking recipes, take a photo and enter our Golden Spoon Photo Contest! Your food can be cooked indoors, outdoors, on a stove, on a campfire…however you choose. Contest runs from Friday, April 10, 2020 through Friday, April 17, 2020.

Remember that it is still important to follow Youth Protection policies even through online meetings and Scouting activities. Here is a link to the BSA Online and Social Media Guidelines. 

Winners are announced below!
