The Silver Beaver is not for Scouting alone. It will be a much greater help
if you can provide information in areas other than scouting, since the usuall
problem when nominations are rejected is lack of information in areas other
The nomination requires, in addition to Scouting service, service to youth
outside of scouting, service to your church or other religious organization,
service to your profession, and civic service. Since most of us are
aquainted in only one or two of these areas, it is very difficult to gather
the information for all of them.
