Early Rank Requirements

Visit the National Boy Scout website to see videos explaining how to complete the early rank requirements: Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class Rank Requirements.  Great Resource for Scouts and their leaders.

Eagle Scouts

When a Scout or Venturer earns his Life Rank he begins to work on the remaining requirements for the Eagle Scout Rank. Troops/Crews should assign a mentor, e.g., Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop Committee Chair, Crew Advancement Chair, etc., to mentor and "enable" the Scout or Venturer through the remaining requirements for the Eagle Scout Rank. Troops/Crews are encouraged to call/e-mail the District Advancement Chair to coordinate a Life to Eagle Seminar for its Scouts/Venturers, Scouters, and parents. The seminar will outline the policies and procedures for completing the requirements for the Eagle Scout Rank. The Scoutmaster, entire Troop/Crew Committee, and the District Advancement Chair must approve Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project plan before any work can begin toward the project. The Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook must be used to document plan and all work accomplished during execution of Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project. Contact the District Advancement Chair to make arrangements for a review of Scout's/Venturer's Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project plan. The District Advancement Chair will schedule the Eagle Scout Board of Review only after confirmation from Far East Council that all required paperwork, e.g., Eagle Scout Rank Application, Letters of Recommendation, Statement of Ambitions, Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook, etc. are complete with all required signatures. The latest Eagle Scout Project Workbook can be found on the National Eagle Scouts Association (NESA) website.

Adams Service Project Award

The National Eagle Scout Association has established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by a Scout to a religious institution, a school, community, or other entity. The award recognizes the Scout for his Eagle Scout service project, which is part of the requirements for earning the Eagle Scout Award. Each local council will choose a council-level winner, and from that pool each region will pick a region-level winner. From the four regional finalists, an overall winner will be selected. Learn more about it from the National Eagle Scout website.
