The Silver Beaver Award

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 to youth over an extended period of time. The local council presents a limited number of Silver Beaver Awards each year, according to the number of registered units in the council.
This award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish and effective service to the community, usually through the programs of the Boy Scouts of America, but not limited to Scouting. Because individuals 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. Districts cannot be guaranteed that they will have someone selected for this award. There is not a district allocation. That said, every consideration will be made when there are district volunteers equally qualified for selection.
It is the intent of the Silver Beaver Committee to select the most deserving based on the applications submitted. These awards will be presented at the Council Recognition Dinner. All volunteers are encouraged to attend, especially those receiving the Silver Beaver Award, along with those close to them.
