Citizenship in Society Merit Badge ***
If an Eagle packet is submitted to the Scout Office, and all Requirements 1-6 on the Eagle application is dated prior to July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge is not required. If any of Requirements 1-6 is dated on or after July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge is required to be included as one of the required merit badges earned.

The Council Advancement Committee
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.

Email a copy to -
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.
It is customary for Eagle Scouts to receive congratulatory letters from civic, community, military and other leaders who appreciate and recognize the importance of their accomplishments and wish to support them by providing encouragement. If you would like to request a letter of congratulations, please visit the links below.
