 North Star Award Nomination Form

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

The North Star award is for recognizing 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.
 
The due date for nomination is by close of business Friday, December 3, 2021 to Andrea McClellan.

Is your Hero a BSA Alumnus?

The Boy Scouts of America Council Alumnus of the Year Award is the Scouting Alumni Association’s highest council recognition. The award was established to recognize alumni of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) who, over a sustained period of time, have used the skills and values they learned through their association with Scouting to make significant and long-lasting contributions to their local communities through their careers, avocations, and Scouting. This award is similar in scope to that of the National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award for all eligible BSA alumni.

A BSA alumnus includes anyone positively and personally impacted by the BSA—former Scouts, family members of Scouts past and present, community leaders, and the millions of Americans who benefit from Scouting in their communities every day.

The due date for nomination is by close of business Friday, December 3, 2021 to Andrea McClellan.
