Silver Beaver Nominations

The highest award that a local council can give to a volunteer Scout Leader for service to youth.

Of the hundreds of awards that are presented each year, the Silver Beaver is the highest and most prestigious honor awarded to a volunteer by a local council. As a movement whose leadership is overwhelmingly volunteer, the Boy Scouts of America recognizes the need to acknowledge those individuals who truly go above and beyond to guarantee the availability of a quality Scouting program. Please consider nominating a dedicated Scouter that has influenced the program of Scouting in your area for this award.

When nominating a Scouter for this honor, please consider the following:

  • This award is made for noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth by registered BSA adult volunteers within the South Georgia Council
  • Service of a non-Scouting nature is also a considered during the evaluation process
  • Nominations must be submitted only on the official BSA Nomination Form.
  • The South Georgia Council recognizes and truly appreciates the dedication of the many Scouters in our area, however, we are limited by National BSA protocol as to the number of Silver Beaver Awards that can be presented. 
  • All nominations will be reviewed by a volunteer committee

Nomination forms are due by December 31st, 2017
