A message to all Unit Leaders and Committee Chairs,
 
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, Scouts BSA 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 who has made an impact on the lives of youth through service given at the council level. Visit our website to complete the online nomination form by November 20.

The Silver Beaver Award was introduced in 1931 and is a council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given at the council level.
