This page is dedicated to the boys from Troop 209 who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. The Eagle Scout Service Project is one of the more challenging aspects of reaching Scouting’s highest honor. Following a brief description of the Eagle Scout Service Project, you will find a history of the projects taken on and successfully completed by our Eagle Scouts.
To become an Eagle Scout, a Life Scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project to any religious institution, school, or community. As a demonstration of leadership, the Scout must plan the work, organize the personnel needed, and direct the project to its completion. The Eagle service project is an individual matter; therefore, two Eagle candidates may not receive credit for the same project.
Eagle Scout leadership service projects involving council property or other BSA activities are not acceptable for an Eagle service project. The service project also may not be performed for a business, be of a commercial nature, or be a fund-raiser.
Routine labor, or a job or service normally rendered, should not be considered. An Eagle service project should be of significant magnitude to be special and should represent the candidate’s best possible effort.
The Scout must submit his proposed project idea and secure the prior approval of his unit leader, unit committee, and district or council advancement committee, or their designee, to make sure that it meets the stated standards for Eagle Scout leadership service projects before the project is started. This pre-approval of the project does not mean that the board of review will accept the way the project was carried out.
Upon completion of the project, a detailed report must be submitted with the Scout’s Eagle application to include the following information:
What was the Project? (example project)
How did it benefit others?
Who from the group benefiting from the project gave guidance?
Who helped carry out the project?
What materials were used and how were they acquired?
You will find most forms required to become an Eagle Scout in our Eagle Scout Forms page.
