Requirements


SILVER WORLD AWARD

Originally intended for non-Scouters,  this award was presented by the Chief Scout Executive, National President, International Commissioner BSA, or other designated person to adults for international service to the BSA's Scouting programs.   The Chief Scout Executive, National President and the BSA's International Commissioner had the group authority to grant this award to anyone and this created situations where the Silver World Award was awarded to a BSA member.

The awards were suspended in 1994 by the National Executive Board until narrower requirements for the awarding of the medal could be established.  Only about 40 of these awards went to BSA members.  No further information is available.

The ScoutingBSA.org web site is a legacy site of the Viking Council BSA, now Northern Star Council.  
This site was the original council site and was active from 1996 to 2002 and run by volunteers.  As the web became more important to Scouting, the council took over with paid staff.  This site is no longer maintained but is an interesting snapshot of an early Scouting web site.    You can share your comments
