SILVER BEAVER AWARD
The Silver Beaver Award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the program of the BSA, 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.
HOW TO NOMINATE A SCOUTER FOR THE SILVER BEAVER AWARD
If you know a Scouter who is worthy of the Silver Beaver award, please let us know. Download the nomination form and submit it to the Dan Beard Council to the attention of Michelle Byrne, Program Director, at 10078 Reading Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45241.
The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2023.
