Eagle Project Proposal Review Process

Important changes to the Eagle Project review process:


The Hornets Nest District has moved to a form request rather than an email request to request an Eagle Project Review.


This form is to be used by Life Scouts of the Hornets Nest District to request a review of their Eagle project proposal.  Once the request is received, a reviewer will be assigned and the Scout will receive an email confirmation.  The reviewer will contact the Life Scout directly using the email provided in the form. The Parent email and Unit Leader email will be cc'ed on the email from the reviewer back to the Scout. 


Hornets Nest Eagle Project Review Request: https://forms.gle/Ti234KEYufahyGDm6

Items to double check ...

1.  Ensure you have ALL your signatures for your proposal.  The signatures required prior to a District review are the Scout, Unit Leader, Unit Committee and Beneficiary. All of these signatures should be on the same page. Email approvals are acceptable if a written signature is not attainable, but must be on the same signature page from the Eagle Scout workbook proposal section. You can email a scanned copy of the signature page to each approver one at a time to get approvals if necessary. Don't forget to sign the signature page yourself.

2.  Make sure you are using the latest Eagle Project workbook PDF from https://www.scouting.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/EagleProjectWorkbook2021c-v2.pdf. The Eagle Scout workbook is a fillable PDF so the easiest way to fill it out is on a computer. If filled out manually, the Scout will still need to get it back to a PDF format so it can be sent electronically to the reviewer. The reviewer will ask you to email the PDF to him/her.  Be Prepared!


3. Make sure all sections of the Eagle Scout workbook proposal section are filled out prior to asking for District review.


For general questions about the form or the Hornets Nest Eagle project review process, please send your email question(s) to hornetsnest.advancement@gmail.com.


As a reminder, please continue to follow recommended YPT policies with electronic communications.
