2014 Eagle Scout Rank Application released

The 2014 Eagle Scout Rank Application (512-728_WB) is released, a link is on the District Eagle Advancement Resources page, and is the only version approved for use by candidates completing requirements on or after January 1, 2014.

In addition to the placement of Cooking in the list of required merit badges under Requirement 3, please also be aware that there are now seven (7) requirements on the application.

The 7th requirement now reads:”Successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review. In preparation for your board of review, prepare and attach to your Eagle Scout Rank Application a statement of your ambitions and life purpose and a listing of positions held in your religious institution, school, camp, community, or other organizations, during which you demonstrated leadership skills. Include honors and awards received during this service.”

In other words:

  1. Successfully completing the Eagle BOR is now a specifically numbered requirement.
  2. 2- The statement of life purpose / list of honors that was part of Req 6 is now part of Req 7. As such, it is being made clear that the statement of life purpose / list of honors is intended to provide the board of review with a document that will reveal, in a few minutes of reading, an understanding of the young man’s hopes, hobbies, values, etc.
