2021 Silver Antelope Nominations
It is time to nominate deserving volunteers for the 2021 Silver Antelope Award.
Nomination forms with no more than two recommendation letters must be submitted together electronically to the National Service Center at OfficeOfCentralRegion@scouting.org no later than November 30, 2020. Reminder – The candidate should not be notified of this nomination.
When submitting the Silver Antelope nomination form electronically, please include as much correct and relevant information about the nominee as possible. Incomplete nominations will not be considered. 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 saying how great the nominee is.
There are a LOT of well-deserving BSA volunteers who have given longtime service to youth…here’s one way you can assist the BSA with recognizing them!
The Silver Antelope Award recognizes BSA volunteers for service to youth within one of the four Regions – Northeast, Southern, Central or Western – of the BSA. This isn’t a “thank you” for service as a Regional or Regional Area leader or Commissioner but rather a “thank you” for service as a BSA volunteer in some sort or nature for a period of time.
Scoutmasters and Commissioners have been awarded the Silver Antelope Award in the past; so have many people who have served on various committees and task forces at the Region or Regional Area basis.
Please nominate those you feel deserve this special honor…and on behalf of so many volunteers, professionals, and PARENTS — thank you for your participation, service, and leadership to Scouting!!!
