EG Eagle Board
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The designation "Eagle Scout" was founded over one hundred years ago. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill.
Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges. The Eagle Scout must demonstrate Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout. Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership, and merit badge requirements. So, the next time you read of a boy who has just received their Eagle Scout Award - be impressed! This award was not handed to him, he earned it.
Our Everglades District Eagle Boards are normally held the 1st Wednesday of every month.
