Celebrating 100 Years

Leaders are those who see possibilities and inspire others to see them too. Over the past century, Scouting leaders have inspired millions of Americans to dream more, do more, and become more. They have shaped our nation’s youth by modeling Scouting virtues. And now the Boy Scouts of America has a way to thank them for their dedicated service to the Scouting movement.

The BSA 100th Anniversary National Hall of Leadership provides a one-time opportunity for you to honor and recognize a Scouting leader who positively impacted your life, or the lives of others. To be nominated, a person must be a living Scout or Scouting volunteer who may or may not be officially registered with the BSA. They must have served as an active Scout or Scouting volunteer for at least one year. A nominee may be young or old — there is no age limit  and you can submit as many nominations as you’d like.

The nomination period is open for one year, from February 8, 2009 to February 8, 2010. One inductee will be selected from each local BSA Council in the country along with one from the National BSA office. Inductees will be announced at the BSA National Annual Meeting in Dallas in May 2010.

Our country will never outgrow the need for thoughtful leadership. And, so it will never outgrow the need for those dedicated individuals who live their lives by the Scout Law and teach others to do the same. Please, take some time to tell the story of a leader who inspired you. SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION HERE!

Are you a Scout leader or have you been a leader? We want to hear from you. Nominate a leader today!

Scouting builds: character, leadership, achievement, service to others and appreciation for the outdoors. Be a Scout! Re-connect and re-engage with Scouting at www.BSAalumni.org

    It is great that the Boy Scouts continue the Tradition. I have been a ASM, Gulfridge Council in Brandon, Florida, it was a GREAT experience, as a Woodbadger I was about to mentor the Scouts. The training in WB was terrific in establishing networking connections with other leaders. I happened to be in Japan with the USAF 655th TAC Hospital and provided medical support at the World Jamboree in the early 70’s. It rained heavily during the time and some of Scouts literally were floating down Mt Fuji on their air mattresses. My Troop in Brandon attended the National at Ft AP Hill in ~1980–that was one fun trip, I doubt the scouts and advisors will ever forget that one. While stationed at USAF Hospital at MacDill AFB in Tampa we started an Explorer group for the Medical profession.
