Third Way to Wear Eagle Scout Palms -

In January of 2014, the BSA Awards and Insignia Committee approved a third place on the Scout uniform for wearing Eagle Palms.  Traditionally, Eagle Palms were and are worn on the Eagle medal ribbon by youth and adults and on the Eagle Scout Square Knot or the National Eagle Scout Association Square Knot by adults.  In 2014, youth may also wear Eagle Palms directly on their Eagle Scout oval cloth patches.  Placement on the patches is not specified.  Read more at
