Western Region Announces 2009 Silver Antelope Recipients

Posted on 16 March 2009 by Editor

The Western Region has announced its 2009 Silver Antelope recipients. These individuals will be honored at the Western Region Luncheon at the National BSA meeting in May 2009.

About the Silver Antelope Award
BSA Silver AntelopeThe Silver Antelope Award, created in 1942, is granted for outstanding service to youth within the territory of a BSA region. The criteria are similar to those for the Silver Buffalo, with one major difference: A recipient must be a registered adult member of the Boy Scouts of America. The awards are presented in connection with regional meetings or at other public functions within the region. The National Court of Honor bestows Silver Antelope Awards on the basis of the number of registered volunteers in a region.
