CORRECTION—Silver Beaver Award Nominations

Nominations for the Silver Beaver Award should be submitted to Stan Richards, rather than our Colonial District awards committee. <!–

Dear Colonial District Scouts and Scouters,

In recent communication about District and Council Award nominations, we mistakenly advised that nominations for the Council-level Silver Beaver Award could be submitted through our District Awards Committee like nominations for other District and Council awards.

We have since learned that nominations for the Silver Beaver Award are to be submitted directly to our District Silver Beaver Chair, Stan Richards at Additional detail on the Silver Beaver Award and the nomination process is shared at the end of this email. 

We apologize for our error and sincerely hope that you will consider nominating deserving Scouters for this and other awards!

Yours in Scouting,
The Colonial District
