Do you know a Hero that is not a registered Scouter?

The National Court of Honor introduced a new award to join the prestigious Silver Beaver award. The North Star award is for non-Scouters. Councils may use this new award to recognize individuals for significant contributions such as contributing land for a new service center or for the CPA who has served the council for years or for use at a Distinguished Citizen Awards program for service in the council-served area. This award is on par with the Silver Beaver which recognizes registered Scouters for their distinguished service.

If you would like to nominate your hero, please complete and submit the nomination form to your district executive or to the Ventura County Council Silver Beaver Selection Committee c/o Ventura County Council, BSA, 509 Daily Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010. The due date for nomination is by close of business Friday, December 15, 2017.
