Know a Scouting Superstar? Silver Buffalo Nominations Now Being Accepted

It is time to nominate deserving volunteers for the 2017 Silver Buffalo Award.

Only electronic nominations and recommendation letters will be accepted — using the Silver Buffalo nomination form — at awards@scouting.org before the deadline of August 31.

When submitting the nomination form, please include as much correct and relevant information about the nominee as possible. Be sure the nominee’s name is spelled correctly, and highlight all contributions to youth inside and outside of Scouting. Additional endorsement letters from specific areas may be included, provided they feature detailed explanations of the nominee’s contributions and are not just letters generally saying how great the nominee is.

Important change: Nominations are no longer kept for two additional years for consideration if the nominee is not selected. Nominations must be submitted annually. Also, incomplete nominations will not be considered.

Questions related to the Silver Buffalo nomination process can be addressed to Dick Schmidt, Rhonda DeVaney, or Velma Cooks.
