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.”
