About the Council Banquet
The Indian Nations Council recognizes the best of the Council’s youth and the best of its adult leaders at its annual Eagle Scout and Silver Beaver Award Recognition Banquet each spring.
This combined gala event celebrates the success of our Council’s youth in achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, Scouting’s highest youth award, together with recognizing those adult leaders receiving the Silver Beaver Award for their noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth.
Each 2020 Eagle Scout attending the banquet is presented with a medallion commemorating their accomplishment, together with a unique, limited edition, council shoulder patch presented by Tulsa 26 Scouts, Inc. All 2020 Eagle Scouts who reserve your spot to attend the Eagle Scout and Silver Beaver Council Recognition Banquet will receive this collectors patch. Designer and Artwork by Bill Shaffer, Scoutmaster Troop 26.
It’s Time to Nominate Silver Beaver Award Recipients!
Now that it is fall, it is time to consider and nominate registered adult leaders worthy to be selected for the Silver Beaver Award. It is the highest award a Council can bestow upon an adult volunteer leader, recognizing noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth, both in and outside of Scouting, together with service to the community.
Too often, exceptional volunteers go unrecognized under the mistaken presumption that a leader has been around Scouting for a long time and probably already has the award. The truth is there are a lot of jewels hidden among our Council leadership who deserve to be justly recognized.
In this time when in-person meetings are fewer, please take the time to think of the adult volunteers within your leadership circle. Consider the individuals on your next Zoom meeting. Who was hidden behind a mask at your last activity that deserves to be a Silver Beaver?
Help us find these exceptional adults and recognize their service!
