Nominate a Scouting Volunteer

Silver Beaver, District Award of Merit and “Of the Year” Awards

Scouting volunteers are the lifeblood of the Scouting program.  Without the  559 registered volunteers in the Twin Valley Council we could not serve the over 1,188 youth in the Scouting program.  Many of these volunteers give much more than the “hour a week” to ensure a quality Scouting program.  Without these volunteers units would not exist, our camps would not function, and activities would be left unplanned.

Help us recognize some of these volunteers by nominating someone today for one of these awards.

Silver Beaver:  The Silver Beaver is the highest award a council can give a Scouting volunteer.  It is given for outstanding service to youth in Scouting at the council, district, and unit level in addition to other volunteerism in their community.  The council is allocated two of these awards annually.
