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

The North Star award is for non-Scouters. This 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.
