In Scouting, we like to honor Scouts and volunteers for their achievements and service to others, and we have many types of awards to do that! Awards Central is the BSA’s always-updated list of every award with links to resources for them.
Here on our Council page, please find an overview of some of the most-commonly awarded honors, including the training awards all Scouters can earn and the annual awards for meritorious service to Districts (District Award of Merit), to the Council (Silver Beaver), and to Venturing at the Council level (Venturing Leadership Award).
