The Silver Beaver Award is the council-level distinguished service award of the Boy Scouts of America. Recipients of this award are registered adult leaders who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community service through hard work, self-sacrifice, dedication, and many years of service.
Annually in the last quarter of the year, the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council convenes a committee of past Silver Beaver recipients from all districts, to choose the next Silver Beaver class. The number of Silver Beavers awarded annually is based on the number of units in the council that year.
The Silver Beaver awards are presented at the Council Annual Recognition dinner in the following spring.
Nominations can be submitted by a Scouter
