  3. Approved awards may be presented by an authorized member of the Boy Scouts of America either by a personal visit with the recipient or at an official meeting of a national Scout association, including the Boy Scouts of America.

    4. Chairman of the International Committee
  5. The award may be granted upon the concurrence of any three of the above. Awards may be made at any time on behalf of the International Committee and the Executive Board. The International Committee receives a full report of the Silver World Award designation at each meeting and will maintain accumulative records of awards including support data.
  6. As evidence of the award there will be presented: a suitable certificate duly authorized by the Boy Scouts of America; and a medal suspended by a red and white ribbon to be worn around the neck when such practice does not conflict with approved uniform policy. The medal will be a circular blue enameled silver medallion upon which will be superimposed meridian lines and stars signifying the global scope of the award. An applied silver universal badge of the Boy Scouts of America will be centered upon the front of the medallion.
