Did you know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Walt Disney’s Boy Scouts award?

The Boy Scouts of America’s highest commendation of the invaluable contributions that outstanding Americans make to youth is the Silver Buffalo Award. It is presented annually to individuals who have demonstrated noteworthy service to youth. The service must be national in scope and can be independent of, or directly through, the Boy Scouts of America. It was first awarded in 1926 and in its 87-year history only 732 awards have been presented, including one Walter E. Disney in 1946. Walt was presented the award for his life’s work, for “contributing to the joy of youth in every land…and the elevation of their standards of good taste.”

    Not surprised that Walt one a prestigious award like this. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure that youth (and their parents) were well entertained and educated!

      Absolutely! It’s almost as if that award were created with him in mind :)

    Very cool! It makes me wonder if he was a boy scout as a kid. He sure does contribute joy to the world :)

    • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

      I’ve never read of him being a boy scout. He was already working to help out the family in elementary school, and his days were pretty full. Doubt he had time for it, unfortunately. I’m sure he would have loved it!

  • DIStherapy

    Well deserved, I would say! Thanks for the Walt tidbits Jodi. :D
