what foolows is some but not all of the reference material:
> Scouter Training Award
Leadership Training, Plans, Procedures, Materials - available from council
trading post. Readily available.
> George Meany Award
Check out your council office for the District Executive who can
find the form. Talk to your local Labor Union. Award is Area or
Regional by year, fairly rare.
> Whitney Young, Jr. Award
Again, this is an avasilable council form/nomination, fairly rare.
> William H. Spurgeon Award
check out the web page http:\\ultranet.com\~beoric\ssc.html. There is
a number of these information sheets available via that source. This
one was just posted to the page.
> OA Distinguished Service Award
Check with the OA Lodge Chief for the criteria that the youth use as
a guidline. The lay advisor and the professional for your council may
also have it.
> Distinguished Commissioner Service Award
Maybe it is in the Commissioner Basic Training Manual or Commissioner
> Scouter's Key
Leadership Training - the progress cards are "reproduce locally" forms
in the back of the book.
> Silver Antelope
A region level "Silver" animal award, very rare. Forms found at the
council service center.
> Silver Buffalo
A nation level "Silver" animal award, very rare. Usually given to
individuals who have served Scouting from the outside. Forms
at the council office.
> Silver World
Check out the Web page, there was a good explanation direct from BSA
> James E. West Memorial Award
Recognition for $1000 given to endowment fund of the council, not the
operating fund. Forms at the council office.
Sounds like your putting together a awards and recognitions package for
Scouters. Check the archives here, as there was an excellant article
about the Scout Master Award of Merit, Cub Leader Awards (all 6?), etc.
