Deserved Recognition - Silver Beaver Award Nominations

Dear Scouting Friends,

As the Friday deadline (12-08-23, 5:00 p.m.) approaches for the Silver Beaver Award nomination submission, I am asking that you please help to make sure that everyone receives the recognition they deserve. Please use the nomination forms (found below) and I've also included an attachment of the list of previous Silver Beaver recipients for you to double-check to make sure that the person you feel is deserving of the Award is either on this list or someone you plan to nominate by Friday. If you need assistance with the middle part of the application, please reach out to me and I can assist you with most of it. The nomination form remains attached.

The nomination form for the District Award of Merit is also found below. (Submission deadline set in your District.)

and if the Scoutmaster is a boys’ man he can see it, too.”
