Robert E. Burt Boy Scout Volunteer Award
The Eagle Scout Committee also processes nominations for the Robert E. Burt Boy Scout Volunteer Award. The Robert E. Burt Boy Scout Volunteer Award is a BSA-recognized Community Organization Award presented to members of the SAR in good standing who have displayed outstanding dedication to the Scouting Program. Award criteria are based on work accomplishment and dedication rather than specific length of service time. The medal is awarded by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution upon nomination by a state society. Each state society may nominate two (2) awardees per calendar year. At the Spring SAR Leadership Meeting, the Eagle Scout Committee will determine whether a state society may nominate additional awardees during that calendar year using a formula based on each state’s membership as of January 31st of that year. Awards not presented may not be carried over to subsequent years.
