Eagle Palms requirements

These requirements become effective Aug 1, 2017 and were revised Oct 2017.

After successfully completing your Eagle Scout board of review on or after Aug. 1, 2017, and being validated as an Eagle Scout by the National Service Center, you will be entitled to receive an Eagle Palm for each additional five merit badges you have completed before your Eagle Scout board of review beyond those required for Eagle. In addition, all current Scouts who completed their Eagle board of review and who had not passed their 18th birthday before Aug, 1, 2017 are entitled as well. For these Palms only, it will not be necessary for you to complete the requirements stated below.

After becoming an Eagle Scout and receiving the Eagle Palms you were entitled to, you may earn additional Palms by completing the following requirements:

  1. Be active in the Boy Scouts of America for at least three months after becoming an Eagle Scout or after the last Eagle Palm was earned.
  2. Since earning the Eagle Scout rank or your last Eagle Palm, demonstrate Scout spirit by living the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Tell how you have done your duty to God and how you have lived the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your everyday life.[1]
  3. Continue to set a satisfactory example of accepting responsibility or demonstrating leadership ability.
  4. Earn five additional merit badges beyond those required for Eagle Scout or your last Eagle Palm.
  5. While an Eagle Scout, participate in a Scoutmaster[2] conference.[3]

Footnotes

  1. Eagle Palms must be earned in sequence, and the three-month tenure requirement must be observed for each Eagle Palm.
  2. For Varsity Scouts working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "Scoutmaster" with "Varsity Scout Coach". For Venturers working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "Scoutmaster" with "Crew Advisor". For Sea Scouts working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "Scoutmaster" with "Skipper".
  3. Merit Badges earned any time since becoming a Boy Scout may be used to meet this requirement.

The text of these requirements may be locked. In that case, they can only be edited
