The first day of Outdoor Retailer kicked off yesterday in Denver, Colorado with several Boy Scouts of America representatives in attendance, highlighting the fun and adventure Scouting offers the whole family.

As part of the BSA’s ongoing partnership with Outdoor Retailer – the world’s leading business-to-business outdoor sports show – Boy Scouts of America sponsored the Outdoor Inspiration Awards which honor inspiring individuals and groups in the outdoor community. Outdoor Retailer invited John Stewart, BSA’s Director of Corporate Engagement and Chief Sustainability Officer, along with two Cub Scouts participating in the Early Adopter program in the Denver Area Council, to introduce two categories of the award. Local Denver-area media were on-hand to celebrate the event and hear from the newest Cub Scout members.

Additionally, Shelley ONeill of Philmont Scout Ranch presented the Non-Profit Inspiration Award to the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. The member-driven Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics teaches the foundational Scouting principle of Leave No Trace that encourages Scouts of all ages to enjoy the outdoors ethically and responsibly.
