Eagle Scout Process

Eagle ScoutThe fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. The award is a performancebased achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 1.7 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1912. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.


Important documents that a Life Scout should download and review are:


  • Eagle Scout Rank Application (PDF)


Eagle Scout Service Project


Effective on October 2015, Life Scouts working towards their Eagle Rank should use this new workbook;

  • Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook (PDF)


Life Scouts currrently woking towards Eagle should continue to use the workbook and finish their project with that.  Life Scouts that are just starting working their Project should use the new Eagle Project Workbook. Additional guidance on selecting an Eagle Scout project is here. All questions should be directed to the respective District Advancement Chair.
