Awards & Recognitions
Recognizing the Best in Scouting
The Boy Scouts of America and the Cascade Pacific Council have a rich history of recognizing the goal-getters, the achievers and the leaders of Scouting. Below are some of the ways you can honor those you know.
There are a huge variety of opportunities to recognize Scouts and Scouters with national awards from the Boy Scouts of America. Visit the BSA’s Awards Central website for the latest opportunities. (You may even propose an idea of your own to recognize Scouting’s best.)

Distinguished Eagle Scout Award
The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award was established in 1969 to acknowledge Eagle Scouts who have distinguished themselves on a national level, receiving recognition or eminence within their field and who have a strong record of voluntary service to their community. Only Eagle Scouts who earned the Eagle Scout rank a minimum of 25 years previously are eligible for nomination. The award is granted by the National Eagle Scout Association upon the recommendation of a committee of Distinguished Eagle Scouts and awarded at our annual Leadership Luncheon.
Each year, districts are recognized for their leadership at our Council Court of Honor. Download these nomination forms below.
