Eagle Scout Board of Reviews

An Eagle Scout Board of Review is similar to Boards of Review for earlier ranks with the following exceptions: a representative from the district advancement team must be present, and the board sends its recommendation to the Dan Beard Council which then sends it to the National Scout Office for concurrence.

The Eagle BoR is a unit activity and is chaired by a member of the unit committee. The BoR is to include at least three, and no more than six adults (over 21 years of age), members, but excluding the Scoutmaster, ASM's and parents/guardians.  Extensive knowledge of Scouting is not a prerequisite.  In fact, teachers or other trusted adults familiar with the candidate may serve.  During the BoR, members can be familiarized with the proceedings.

The following need to be met before the Eagle Board of Review can be scheduled with the district advancement team:

  • The candidate's Eagle Application with a completed Scoutmaster Conference and all unit level signatures, and Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook must be completed and submitted to the Dan Beard Council for approval.
  • The approved Eagle Application and Project Workbook must be returned approved.
  • The Letter of Recommendations must be received by the unit coordinator (these remain sealed until the BoR).
  • The Eagle candidate must submit his “Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose.”

Then, please contact the Blue Jacket District Advancement team to schedule an Eagle BoR:
