Eagle Scout

The Eagle Scout Award is primarily a recognition for Boy Scouts, but it may be earned by male Venturers who earned the First Class Rank while members of a Boy Scout troop. Leadership requirements may be met through leadership positions in a Venturing Crew.

Requirements
Venturers who earn the Eagle Scout Award as a member of a crew must demonstrate skills in both optional and required areas through earning merit badges. Eagle Scout candidates must also serve in a position of leadership in their Venturing Crew and design and lead a service project that benefits their community.

The Recognition
The Eagle Scout Award medal features a suspended eagle hanging from a red, white, and blue ribbon. The ribbon is itself suspended from a scroll featuring the Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared.” An embroidered square knot emblem is available for wear on an adult Boy Scout or Venturing uniform. Venturers may wear the embroidered Eagle Scout pocket patch until their youth membership ceases at age 21.
