Purpose

The Boy Scouts of America's annual Report to the Nation highlights the achievements of the BSA's values-based program.  A representative contingent of youth delegates is chosen annually to present the report to the Speaker of the House as required by our charter. Other government officials that traditionally receive the report include the president of the United States, Congressmen from both houses, and other government officials. Every U.S. president since William Howard Taft has received a BSA Report to the Nation delegation.

Each of the young people chosen to represent our organization embodies the spirit and values that Americans have come to associate with Scouting. This year's delegation will visit with elected and appointed dignitaries and tour sites in the area including the White House, Central Intelligence Agency, U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Secret Service, Arlington National Cemetery, Goddard Space Flight Center, and the Pentagon.
