Applications Now Being Accepted For Silver Beaver and District Award of Merit


Recognizing our volunteer leadership is an important part of our program.  The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award a council can give to an adult leader.  In 2018, our council will be able to recognize 2 outstanding leaders with this honor.  The District Award of Merit is the highest award a district can give an adult leader.  In 2018, both River Stone and Cedar Valley can award 2 volunteers this award and Western Prairie can award 1 (based on number of units today).

New for 2018!!!!  We will be accepting nominations for these award between now and December 31, 2017.  We will then announce all those who have been nominated for the award!  Everyone nominated will be recognized at the council annual dinner on April 22, 2018.  Winners will be announced at that time.  Think of it as the “TVC Grammy Awards”.  This includes both the Silver Beaver and the District Award of Merit.
