Daniel Carter Beard
Masonic Scouter Award

Community Organizations Knot


The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award is an honor due to members of the Masonic Lodge who act as role models and provide dedicated service to the young men in the BSA.   The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Award not only supports the Masonic relationship through the man who brought Scouting to America, but proclaims the integrity of the recipient who is honored by receiving the award.

The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award is a Boy Scout Community Organization Award, used by community organizations to honor their volunteers for Scouting.  Recipients are presented a medallion on a neck ribbon (shown below) and may wear the generic Boy Scout Community Organization Award Square Knot shown above.

  • developing of Scouting units;
  • assisting lodges in forming units;
  • exemplifying the Scout Law and Masonic virtues;
  • recruiting Scouting volunteers;
  • strengthening the relationship between Freemasonry and Scouting.
