The Silver Beaver Award is the highest council recognition awarded to registered adults for distinguished service to youth, upon nomination by the Cornhusker council to the National court of Honor of the Boy Scouts of America.

The award is made for noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth by registered Cub Scout Leaders, boy Scout Leaders, Venture Scouters, Varsity Scouters, District Level Scouters and Council Level Scouters within the territory , under the jurisdiction of a local council.

The Cornhusker Council has a tremendous list of Silver Beaver recipients and we strive each year to encourage all of our volunteers to see out those who are deserving of this award, and submit their name for consideration.

The nomination form is included on this post.
The deadline for nominations is January 30, 2020

All adults registered in the BSA have been asked to complete a new background authorization form in order to register for 2020. The wording on the form has created some confusion we would like to clear up.

Saturday, December 14th from 9am-1pm. Visit the Cornhusker Council, Outdoor Education Center for unique, handmade shopping options and for interactive activities for youth. See Santa, make a holiday craft and practice your cookie decorating!
Visiting the vendors is free and open to the public. Kids' events and Santa visits are free for current Scouts or $5.00 for the public.
