The Silver Beaver is an award bestowed upon scouters by the National Recognition Committee based upon nominations from local council committees.

The award is made to persons who have given distinguished service to youth within the territorial boundaries of a council.

Criteria for selection include, but are not limited to, direct service at a Council level, effective leadership as a member of a council and/or district committee, which favorably impacts on the council or any of its programs. Tenure alone, while indicative of the nominee's dedication to the service of youth, is not necessarily a key factor in making the selection. Consideration should be given to the nominee's service beyond scouting. School board membership, service clubs and any other distinguished service to his or her community.

"Scout is Reverent" service within the nominee’s life might also be considered

In short - we are seeking an individual who has given noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth

The candidates chosen by the Silver Beaver Committee will be notified by telephone in advance of the dinner and a letter of congratulations will be sent from Council, along with a questionnaire requesting more information for the citation. Arrangements will be made with them for pictures for the printed dinner program.

Awards will be presented during the Twin Rivers Council Annual Meeting and Recognition Dinner on Sunday, Feb. 11, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Saratoga Springs.
