District & Council Recognition

Silver Beaver Nominations (Council recognition)

Do you know a registered BSA Volunteer with exceptional character who has provided distinguished service within the Central Florida Council?  Then, please consider nominating that individual for the Silver Beaver Award.

Recipients of the Silver Beaver Award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given in our Council.  The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service. This prestigious award has been in existence since 1931, and is the highest award that a Volunteer can be bestowed at the Council level.

Do you know that many times, volunteers are not nominated because folks think someone else has already nominated that outstanding Scouter?  Having more than one nomination for the same person is actually a good thing by providing additional documentation as to why that volunteer deserves this awesome award. 

Even if you "think" someone has been nominated for the Silver Beaver, don't "assume" so - nominate anyway.  The more nominations we receive for a leader actually provides more documentation for why they should receive the Silver Beaver. Supporting recommendation letters to a nomination are also appropriate.

To nominate a well deserving volunteer, please complete the Silver Beaver nomination form:, and be sure to include a “Scouting Resume” of the nominee’s service accomplishments. 

Please send your completed nomination form to Traci Shepherd at
