The Silver Beaver Award is given by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America upon recommendation of the local council, to persons who have given outstanding service to youth over an extended period of time. The local Council will present a limited number of Silver Beaver Awards each year, according to the number of registered units in the council.

This award is bestowed upon only those persons who have given continued, unselfish, and effective service to the community, usually through the programs of the Boy Scouts of America, but not limited to Scouting. Because individuals may not nominate themselves for this award, only those persons who have been nominated by their Scouting peers are considered.
