New Eagle Scout Project Workbook

Attention Scouts, Leaders, and Parents or Guardians:

Effective January 1, 2012, the new Eagle Scout Project Workbook will be used.  Click here to read and review all updates.   Through Dec. 31, 2011, Scouts have a choice to use either the new workbook or the one it is replacing.  The new workbook supports the revised wording in Eagle Scout requirement 5, which calls for a project proposal to be approved by the council or district, rather than “the project plan.”

If Scouts have already had their Eagle Scout service project approved by the council or district under the current wording of requirement 5, using the current workbook, they should continue with the same workbook. If their project has not yet been approved by the council or district, they may elect to use the new wording and the new workbook. For Scouts who choose to use the new workbook, those approving Eagle Scout service projects must evaluate projects accordingly, using the procedures outlined in the Guide to Advancement, and judging candidates’ project proposals.

Specific changes include:

  1. Downloadable and fillable pdf Eagle application and workbook  
  2. Fundraising application/procedures/limitations on pages 17-18 - Districts will be approving fundraising applications. 
  3. Notice that fundraising applications must be received at the Council Service Center at least 2 weeks in advance of fundraising efforts.
