Eagle Scout Board of Review

The Board of Review that will convene after you have completed the Eagle Scout requirements will include at least one advancement representative from your district or council. The board will review your full Scouting experience - what you have done, where you have gone, and what you have learned. Board members will be interested in hearing your future Scouting plans. Most of all, they will want to explore how the spirit of Scouting has become a part of your daily life.

Guidelines for Eagle Scout Board of Review

The Board of Review for an Eagle Candidate is composed of a minimum of three members and a maximum of six members, 21 years of age or older. These members do not have to be registered in Scouting, but they must have an understanding of the importance and purpose of the Eagle Board of Review. At least one district or council advancement representative shall be a member of the Eagle Board of Review, when conducted at the unit level, and may serve as chairman if so requested by the unit.

Because of the importance of the Eagle Scout Award, a unanimous decision must be reached as to the Scout's qualifications. If a unanimous decision is not reached, a new review may be convened at the request of the applicant, the unit leader, or the unit committee. The review should take approximately 30 minutes.
