Silver Beaver Nomination Deadline February 10

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award the Tidewater Council, Boy Scouts of America can bestow upon a volunteer Scouter in recognition of distinguished service to youth within the council’s service area.

We are limited to one Silver Beaver Award for every 60 units (Packs, Troops, Crews, Teams, and Posts) registered in our Council at year-end.

Any registered volunteer Scouter who resides within the boundaries of Tidewater Council, and who is at least 21 years of age, at the time of nomination. Nominations cannot be made for posthumous awards.

The official Silver Beaver Nomination Form must be used for nominations.  Nominations must be delivered by mail or in person at the Council Service Center no later than Saturday, February 10, 2018.  Please place the nomination in a sealed envelope and mark it as a Silver Beaver Award nomination.

Nominees will not only be judged on their outstanding volunteer service with the BSA, but their overall service to youth within our council.  Letters of reference and a photo of the nominee are desired.  However, decisions will be made based on the facts provided in this nomination.

This nomination must remain confidential to the nominees. To avoid any possible disappointment, please do not share in any way your actions on their behalf.

Please save a copy of your nomination to use in future years should your nominee not be chosen.  Nominations must be submitted annually and are not carried over by the committee.

The recipients will be selected by a committee comprised of previously selected Silver Beaver recipients who are registered Scouters in our council.

Final approval of the committee’s selection will be by the National Court of Honor. This year’s awards will be presented at the council’s recognition dinner on Thursday, May 17, 2018.
