Eagle Scout Project Information and Forms

The District Eagle Project Review Committees have been receiving an abundance of Eagle Scout projects to review just prior to the Eagle candidate’s 18th birthday. This situation is causing a significant difficulty for both the candidate and the volunteer committee in reviewing and approving the project to accommodate the 18th birthday deadline. The Council Advancement Committee strongly recommends any projects to be reviewed should be submitted at least six months prior to the candidate’s 18th birthday.

Eagle Palms

The BSA has announced significant changes to the way Scouts earn Eagle Palms. The modification took effect August 01, 2017.  The change brings Eagle Palm requirements in line with the needs of older Scouts.


Beginning August 1st, all earned Palms may be requested by the Scout at their EBOR for merit badges completed up to that day. These Palms will be awarded instantly to new Eagle Scouts at their Eagle Court of Honor.  This abolishes the wait of months or years for these young Scouts to receive all Palms available to them.

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) is a prestigious recognition granted by the local council’s NESA committee to Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level. The NOESA recognizes Eagle Scouts whose efforts have made a positive impact in the community.

The presentation of this award should be conducted with the highest level of honor. Often, these men have devoted a lifetime of service to their community and the Boy Scouts of America at a great sacrifice to themselves and their families. Each recipient should receive recognition worthy of a lifetime’s accomplishments.
