Silver Beaver Nominations Due to Council December 15, 2017


Note:  All nominations for the Silver Beaver Award are confidential. To avoid possible disappointment, please do not advise your nominee.


The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award the Northern Lights Council, Boy Scouts of America can bestow upon a volunteer Scouter in recognition of distinguished service to youth within the council’s service area. Nominees will not only be judged on their outstanding volunteer service with the BSA, but their overall service to youth within our council. The actual recipients will be selected by a volunteer committee comprised of Silver Beaver recipients who are registered Scouters in the Northern Lights Council. Final approval of the committee’s selection will be by the National Court of Honor.

The Silver Beaver awards will be presented at the Northern Lights Council’s annual recognition luncheon on Saturday, April 7, 2018.


Any registered volunteer Scouter who resides within the boundaries of Northern Lights Council, and who is at least 21 years of age,at the time of nomination. Nominations will not be considered for former professional Scouters or council employees within five years of their leaving employment with the BSA. Nominations cannot be made for posthumous awards.


Any individual may submit a National BSA Silver Beaver Nomination form (all other forms will not be accepted)!  Each person wishing to nominate a certain Scouter must submit their own individual official nomination form, rather than (1) with multiple signatures on the form, or (2) reproducing one nomination form with different nominating persons names, addresses; the purpose of this is to obtain as much information as possible about the nominee.  No more than 3 letters of recommendation will be accepted with the Form. The BSA Official Silver Beaver Nomination Form must be received no later than December 15, 2017. 

Once all nominations forms with their supporting documents have been received by the council, the Northern Lights Council Silver Beaver committee will meet to review each nomination to ensure that the nomination form is complete with all necessary information regarding the nominee.
