Congratulations!  As a Life Scout you are on the final leg of your Trail to Eagle!  Below is a checklist for completing the Eagle Scout Project and Application.  If you have questions along the way, do not hesitate to reach out to our Advancement Team!

Eagle Scout Project & Application Checklist

___ Download the Eagle Scout Project Workbook.  You must use the latest version of this workbook for the project.  

This workbook contains the following documents:
- Eagle Scout Service Project Proposal 
- Eagle Scout Service Project Plan
- Eagle Scout Service Project Report

___ Develop a plan for your Eagle Scout Service Project.  The project workbook will provide criteria for the project.  An excerpt from the project workbook reads:

"Your project doesn’t have to be original, but it could be. It might be a construction, conservation, or remodeling project, or it could be the presentation of an event with a worthwhile purpose. Conversations with your unit leader, teachers, your religious leader, or the leaders of various community organizations can also uncover ideas. In any case, be sure the project presents a challenge that requires leadership, but also something that you can do with unskilled helpers, and within a reasonable period of time."

Scouting Magazine has several ideas to get you started on planning your project. Click here for a list of resources.

___ Receive the following signatures prior to starting your project: Unit Leader, Committee Chairman, Project Benefactor, and District Advancement Committee. (See next step)

___ Submit your Project Proposal to either Scout Service Center. Your proposal will be reviewed by the District Advancement Committee and you will be informed on their decision. They will either approve the project or provide feedback on changes that need to be made. The committee will inform you on steps to take moving forward to get the project approved.

___ Fill out the Eagle Scout Service Project Plan. This should be completed and reviewed with the Project Coach before work begins on the project.  Some projects may require fundraising to complete.  Please review the resources below:

___ You are ready to start your project! Check out Eagle Scout Project yard signs from either Scout Service Center to display at your project site.

___ Write your Eagle Scout Project Report and fill out the Eagle Scout Application.  You must use the latest version of the application.  

___ Prepare and attach to your Eagle Scout Rank Application a statement of your ambitions and life purpose and a listing of positions held in your religious institution, school, camp, community, or other organizations, during which you demonstrated leadership skills. Include honors and awards received during this service.

___ Send the letter of reference form (Eagle Scout Letter of Reference Form) to the six individuals you identified on your application. Include an addressed envelope to your unit leader in each letter.

___ Submit your Project Report and Eagle Scout Application and sealed letters of reference to either Scout Service Center. 

___ A representative of the District Advancement Committee will contact you regarding the date and time of your Eagle Board of Review. Upon successful completion of your Board of Review you will have finished your trail to Eagle!
