COMPLETED PROJECT DOCUMENTATION AND EAGLE APPLICATION

After completing the project, having met all leadership requirements and earned all required merit badges and rank he is ready for the final board of review.   He needs to submit the Eagle Application and the Eagle Scout Service Project Report to the Council for their verification. This package should also include two letters of recommendation (NOT FROM SCOUT LEADERS OR FAMILY MEMBERS). Be sure requirement #6 on the application has been completed.

The Council will forward this package to the Eagle Board for the final approval. The Akela Dist. Eagle Board meets the second Monday of each month at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church at 1225 Chestnut Drive, corner of Westchester Drive.   Upon entering the Church campus, take the road on the right of the circle down to the west side of the Church.  Enter at "West Entrance II", first room on the right.

The candidate should appear in full Scout Uniform and be sure to include his merit badge sash to which should be attached all merit badges that he has earned for the rank of Eagle.

After this final board of review, if approved, the application will be submitted to the National Office for final approval.  It usually takes two-three weeks to receive notification from the National Office once the application is submitted.  When the National Office returns the application to the Council Office, the Scoutmaster will be notified and the Scout’s Project book returned.
