Silver Beaver Award Nominations Due

Posted by Darlene Scheffler Friday, March 29, 2019 11:43:00 AM

Nominations for the Silver Beaver Award are due May 1, 2019.

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest form of recognition that a local council can bestow on a volunteer. In 1931, BSA President Mortimer L. Schiff recommended to the national board that an award be devised for recognition of distinguished service to youth in the area of a local council, and the concept of the Silver Beaver Award recognition was established.

Submit nominations forms to The Silver Beaver Awards will be presented at the Council Recognition Reception on November 19, 2019. 

The Sam Houston Area Council has participated in this recognition program since its inception, presenting Silver Beaver Awards in 1931 to W. A. Childress and to E. A. Hudson. Beginning with those first two awards, more than 1,500 adult leaders in our council have been recognized in this manner.
