Eagle Project Proposal Review Process
Important changes to the Eagle Project review process:
The Hornets Nest District is moving 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. 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. Due to the pandemic, email approvals are acceptable if a written signature is not attainable.
2. Scan in your Eagle project proposal to a PDF. Your reviewer will ask you to email the PDF to him/her. Be Prepared!
ANY REQUESTS THAT ARE EMAILED DIRECTLY TO firstname.lastname@example.org WILL STILL MONITORED AND ACCEPTED. HOWEVER, THE LIFE SCOUT WILL ALSO BE ASKED TO COMPLETE REQUEST FORM IN A FOLLOW-UP EMAIL.
For general questions about the form or the Hornets Nest Eagle project review process, please send your email question(s) to email@example.com.
As a reminder, please continue to follow recommended YPT policies with electronic communications.
