Silver Beaver Award Nominations Due

2020 Silver Beaver Nominations Due on Oct. 18, 2019

The Silver Beaver Award for Distinguished Service to Youth is the highest BSA recognition that can be awarded by a Council to our volunteers. The process of seeking nominees, evaluating their qualifications, and awarding this recognition represents validates efforts of outstanding volunteers who make Scouting our country's premier youth program. 

The council appoints a committee of council & district Scouters previously honored with the Silver Beaver to make the final selections.  Because we have over 60 units in REC, our council is entitled to select two new Silver Beaver recipients each year with the approval of the National Court of Honor.

Our council is strongly committed to identifying and recognizing the most worthy volunteers with primary service to Council for the Silver Beaver honor. An important part of this process is a comprehensive nomination, providing the committee with sufficient information and background to objectively compare closely matched and equally worthy candidates. It is imperative to begin early gathering information addressing each nominee’s community service as well as Scouting service.

Silver Beaver nominations must be submitted to the council by October 18, 2019, in order to permit adequate time for the committee to evaluate and select up to two nominees, secure National Court of Honor approval, and prepare the recognition in advance of the Council Recognition Dinner on February 8, 2020 where the awards will be presented.

Please be sure to use the Nomination Form on the national website that will collect the information to support the nomination.

Consider your fellow Scouters for this award, they deserve to be noticed and awarded. Many may believe a Scouter might already be a Silver Beaver by how involved they have been.  Please see our list of previous REC recipients of the Silver Beaver to see who we have previously recognized:
