This award has been established by the James M. Stewart Museum Foundation with the consent and cooperation of the Boy Scouts of America, Penn Woods Council and the family of James M. Stewart. The purpose of this award is to introduce Boy Scouts to the life of a great American, James Maitland Stewart. The Jimmy Stewart Museum is offering this award to a Boy Scout or Scouter who has exemplified the characteristics necessary to live the life of a Good Citizen.
Jimmy Stewart was born in Indiana, Pennsylvania and grew up with a background in scouting. He remained involved with scouting throughout his adult life and in 1958 he received the Silver Buffalo, the highest award of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. It is hoped that the values of the Boy Scouts that were shared by Jimmy Stewart will become ingrained in each recipient of The James M. Stewart Good Citizenship Award.
Interested Scouts or Scouters should contact The Jimmy Stewart Museum to order a copy of the workbook. The price of the workbook is $4.00 which includes shipping. Scouts can send a check in that amount to:
