Advancement Committee

The Blue Grass Council and each of its districts have an advancement committee which is responsible for facilitating advancement and processing most special awards and recognitions. The committee oversees the Eagle Scout Board of Review process, as well as selecting recipients for council- and district-level awards such as the Silver Beaver or District Award of Merit. Please note that the Venturing Summit award does not require a district-led board of review; instead, each crew is responsible for coordinating a crew board of review themselves.
