2018 Silver Beaver Nominations Due

Nominate A Worthy Volunteer

The Silver Beaver is a national award, presented by the local council at our Annual Recognition Dinner. It is the highest honor a local council may bestow upon a volunteer 21 or older. The award consists of a certificate, a formal Silver Beaver emblem on a ribbon, and a square knot to wear on a uniform.


The nomination for the Silver Beaver Award consists of three parts:

  • Noteworthy service of exceptional character to non-Scouting youth
  • Exceptional service to the BSA
  • Service or standing within the community or community organization

To nominate someone you think deserves this honor, fill out the Silver Beaver Nomination Form found in the related content section of this page.

Nominations will not be considered for professional Scouters or council employees within five years of their leaving employment with BSA. Nominations cannot be made for posthumous awards. Self-nominations are not allowed.


Nominations for the 2018 Silver Beaver award are due by the end of the day on November 26, 2017.

Questions can be directed to Joyce Zeman at (763-231-7265) or Dave Arola at (763-231-7262).
