Life to Eagle

Congratulations for taking on the challenge of becoming an Eagle Scout, a distinction that will stay with you for a lifetime. Below is information on the Life Scout to Eagle Scout Process.

Applicants for the rank of Eagle must use the current Eagle Scout rank workbook and application. The new application additionally requires the name of the Eagle Scout project and the grand total of hours devoted to it. Please download the latest application from the National forms page.

Eagle Project Info & Forms

Please note: Older/Other versions of these forms will not be accepted.

 

Workbook

It is the unit’s responsibility to insure that Scouts use the most current version of the Eagle Workbook when submitting their proposal to their District Advancement Chair.  If the Scout is not using the most current version, the project proposal will be rejected by the District Advancement Chair.  

 

Proposal

The Scout must submit the ENTIRE workbook – that means cover to cover.  For those submitting their proposal in person, the workbook should be in a three ring binder.  For those e-mailing or mailing their proposal, they still need to submit the entire workbook.  The Contact Page is very important to those sitting on the board, to the district volunteers and to the Council – The Scout should fill out this information as complete as possible.  REMEMBER – The Scout should be doing his BEST work!

When a Scout has finished all requirements for Eagle they are to mail their entire package to the Great Alaska Council via Certified Return Receipt Mail.  They are to include the completed Eagle Workbook, Eagle Application, and Essay as described in the Eagle Application.  The Scout is responsible for gathering all required signatures before his package is mailed to the Scout Shop.  Units are responsible for proof reading and ensuring that the package is complete.
