  •  Very high honor for volunteers.... (0+ / 0-)

    my brother was awarded one.  There are some very fine people who provide a lot of trips and activities for young people.  I hate to see the conservatives wreck this.  There could be quite a liberal group.  Many are sponsored by a school or a church.  One could imagine a Wiccan troop, for example.

    •  Too many Silver Beaver Awards are political (0+ / 0-)

      They SHOULD go to real Scout leaders - Scoutmasters with a decade of service or others that have really done something for Scouting.  Here half of those given out every year go to Board members who put in two years or some politician as a way of building corporate resumes.

      Our Scoutmaster threatened to kill anyone that EVER nominated him for one - and he truly deserves it.  He feels that it has no meaning and has been devalued by those now getting it.
