Temporary Transition Rules for Females and First-time Joining Boys Entering Scouts BSA
  1. Youth 16 years of age or older, but not yet 18, on February 1, 2019 who register as members of Scouts BSA on or before December 31, 2019, may request extensions to complete the Eagle Scout Award requirements after they turn 18 years of age.
  2. Requests for extensions must be received no later than thirty (30) days after turning 18 years of age. Extensions must be in writing by submitting the designated form to the National Service Center and the form must be received no later than January 7, 2020. Only the National Council may grant extensions. The actual extension will be based upon the individual’s registration date and age at the time of the request and will provide not more than twenty-four months from the date of initial registration to complete all requirements.
  3. In the interest of fairness, these temporary transition rules apply to all youth joining Scouts BSA during 2019–both girls and first-time joining boys.

The "designated form" has not yet been released as of 20 Nov 2018. This is quoted from https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/Implementation-Details-for-Scouts-BSA-FINAL.pdf

Boy Scout Star rank requirement resources include the Star rank Worksheet, Adobe Acrobat PDF Merit Badge Workbooks,
and important Boy Scout topics including Active, Scout Spirit, Scoutmaster Conference, and Board of Review.

This page is about the Boy Scout Star rank.
For information about the
Service "Star", see Service Star.


Star rank

 
Previous:
First Class rank
Next:
Life rank

The advancement program for Scouts BSA is symbolized by the earning of seven ranks. The program is often considered to be divided into two phases.

The second phase of Star, Life, and Eagle is designed to develop leadership skills and allow the Scout to explore potential vocations and avocations through the merit badge program. The Star, Life, and Eagle ranks require that the Scout serve in a position of responsibility and perform community service. All ranks (as well as Eagle Palms) require that the Scout participate in a Scoutmaster conference and pass a Board of Review.

Recognition

When a boy has earned the Scout rank or when a board of review has approved his advancement, the Scout deserves recognition as soon as possible. This should be done at a ceremony at the next unit meeting. His achievement may be recognized again later, during a formal court of honor.
Guide To Advancement § 4.2.1.4 The Scout Is Recognized.


The Scout may be awarded his rank patch or a rank pin.
