The Silver Beaver Award is one of Scouting's highest honors that can be bestowed upon an adult volunteer. It is an outstanding distinction for service!
To be considered, our best scouters must be nominated. In years past, the Sweetwater district has been well represented. There are many reasons for that.
Not the least of which, the winners worked hard for the council and deserve to be recognized. Let's get cooking and crank out some well-earned nominations by May 25th.
Access the form HERE. For questions about qualifications or how to fill effectively complete the nomination, please contact Ranny Burts. Please notify Ranny by email when submitting a nomination.
