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

We all know how truly amazing our Scouting parents are. They go above and beyond, and they constantly ask what they can do and how they can help.

In many ways, they are our best asset to help demonstrate the value of the Boy Scouts of America and to talk about what this great organization means to American communities.

So, we want to make you all aware of a newly-formed group called “BSA Parents” that has just launched on digital and social media.

The group was formed by and is run by parents of Scouts. The group came together so parents can use the Internet and social media to talk about what Scouting means to them. As you can imagine, this is powerful stuff — we're excited to share their launch video and site here: https://www.bsaparents.com and on social media (please see bottom of this article).

We also want to let you know that while BSA helped with some seed funding to get them off the ground, this is an independent organization. They are not affiliated with BSA and they formed to help parents tell their stories. It has no dues, it offers no programs, and is not competitive in any way with our Councils. Their mission and stories are ones we want to support!

We are excited to see so many people taking up the message of Scouting. We hope that you will share this site and these videos with parents in your area. More people need to see and hear from the parents who are so involved with — and so passionate about — Scouting. The BSA’s character building programs are essential for our youth and we are excited for parents to help propel that message forward.
