The Silver Antelope Award
The Silver Antelope Award recognizes Scouters of exceptional character who have provided distinguished service within one of the BSA’s four regions — Central, Northeast, Southern and Western.
It’s part of the so-called “Silver family” of BSA awards, alongside the Silver Beaver Award for distinguished service within a council and the Silver Buffalo Award for distinguished service on the national level.
Each of the recipients of the award, created in 1942, has done something remarkable to benefit Scouting.
Awards are presented each year at the regional awards luncheon held in conjunction with the BSA’s National Annual Meeting each May.
Recipients get recognized at the luncheon and receive an orange-and-white knot to wear on their uniforms, an orange-and-white ribbon medal, a lapel pin and, of course, a certificate.
This year our own Scott Armstrong of Troop 51 and Lowanne Nimat Lodge was honored with this prestigious award. Join the Council in congratulating Scott and thank him for all of his hard work for the benefit of Scouting in our Council and the Region.

BSA Parents on social media:
NEW Social Media Group for
Scout Parents
We all know how truly amazing our Scouting parents are. They go above and beyond, and they constantly ask what they can do and how they can help.
In many ways, they are our best asset to help demonstrate the value of the Boy Scouts of America and to talk about what this great organization means to American communities.
So, we want to make you all aware of a newly-formed group called “BSA Parents” that is forming and will launch on digital and social media this week.
Check them out HERE
