New Eagle Scout Project Workbook and Application
New versions of the Eagle Scout project workbook and Eagle Scout Application have been released by the National Advancement Committees. The Eagle Scout Project Workbook has been redesigned to incorporate step by step improved instructions and now distinguishes between logical sections (Proposal, Final Plan and Report).
This Eagle Scout Project Workbook must be used for any projects not completed the project planning phase (as indicated by the signature of the district representative) prior to 12/31/2011 (but can be used now). Eagle Scout candidates must use the official Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook, as produced by the Boy Scouts of America. The official fillable PDF version can be found by clicking here. Although it is acceptable to copy and distribute the workbook, it must maintain the same appearance with nothing changed, added, or deleted.
No council, district, unit, or individual has the authority to produce or require additional forms, or to add or change requirements, or to make any additions, deletions, or changes in the text, outlines, links, graphics, or other layout or informational elements of the workbook. It is permissible, however, to print, copy, or send individual pages or forms within the workbook as long as they are not changed in the process.
The new Eagle Scout Project Workbook also contains guidance for unit , district and council reviewers on how to evaluate an Eagle Scout project.
The revised Eagle Scout Application must be used for any submissions 12/31/2011 or later (but can be used now). This new application, reflecting changes to requirement 5, can be accessed by clicking here.
The Eagle Scout service project requirement has been widely interpreted—both properly and improperly. An Eagle Scout candidate and his parents or guardians can review the same information we provide to council and district volunteers responsible for project approvals throughout the Boy Scouts of America. In addition to reading the entire Eagle Scout Project workbook, the candidate and his parent or guardian should consult the Guide to Advancement, No. 33088, beginning with section 188.8.131.52, “The Eagle Scout Service Project.” The Guide to Advancement is available online by clicking here.
