Eagle Service Project Review Information
UPDATE 01/01/2021 - We are still conducting Eagle Project Proposal Reviews virtually - via email. If you wish to have your Project reviewed, send your project in the full PDF format that is already is in - with any photos associated with it, approval emails of your Scoutmaster, Committee Chair and Beneficiary if not obtained in person - to the advancement email - Etowah.Advancement@gmail.com - and I will have your project reviewed and any correspondence regarding the project will be conducted by email.
Please make sure you are using the most current Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook available - (As of 002/05/2021 - Eagle Scout Service Workbook No. 2021c January 2021 - is the most current workbook.)
This will ensure that you will have all of the requirements for your Project Proposal from beginning to end. This is a PDF form that you can save it to your computer and you can fill it in (type in the boxes, they will expand if you need more space) so that your Workbook will be readable to your Troop Leaders reading through it and the District Reviewer and easy to edit if the need arises.
Please make sure to include at least one of the following adults on your emails - your Scoutmaster, your parents, Eagle Project Coach - so that we will be abiding by the Youth Protection Guidelines.
Please make sure to add your Troop Number to the email as well.
Any questions regarding our District's processes of the Eagle Project Reviews can also be sent to the Advancement email address above.
If your project is going to be done on
Charlotte/Mecklenburg School (CMS) property
Please be advised that "permission or approval" from the principal of the school is not the only "beneficiary approval" needed for your project. You must go through CMS Property Management for final beneficiary approval, after approval by the Eagle Project Review Committee.
The approval process for CMS can take several weeks or possibly months - so please make sure you have enough time - before you turn 18 - to have the CMS beneficiary approval of your project and along with the Etowah Eagle Service Project Review Committee approval.
Please review the following forms -

01/01/2021 - NO IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS ARE BEING CONDUCTED AT THIS TIME. ONLY EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE WILL BE CONDUCTED.
Once the COVID restrictions are lifted and Chartered Organizations are allowing in-person meetings - such as the Eagle Project Reviews and Roundtable - the following in-person reviews procedures will be followed.
To have your Eagle Project Reviewed - Make sure you send an email - with your Name and Troop number by the last day of the month to - Etowah.Advancement@gmail.com
*** In keeping with Youth Protection Guidelines, please add your Project Coach and/or Scoutmaster to the recipients list on your email.***
Appointments are not required, but we do prefer them to help us let the reviewers know you are coming. We want to make sure we have enough reviewers on hand to get everyone in and out quickly.
*** Please make sure that all paperwork is filled out completely and that all signatures needed on the forms have been acquired BEFORE you bring your project to be reviewed.*** We will NOT review a project without the Troop and Beneficiary approval signatures on the project.
Eagle Scout Service Projects must be presented to the District Review Committee at the start of the meeting by the Scout or his representative. Projects will not remain in the custody of the District Review Committee and must be taken home by the Scout or his representative before the meeting is over.
Projects will be reviewed in order, as follows:
Projects from a Scout or representative who sends an email by indicating that the Scout will be present (and the Scout is present) will be reviewed first.
Projects for a Scout who arrives with his Project (without prior email notification) will be reviewed next.
Projects where the Scout is not present will be reviewed last.
