Sample Court of Honor script

There are many sample scripts that are specificly for Eagle Courts of Honor but few for regular Courts of Honor. Here is one sample of a basic Court of Honor script. It is designed to be simple with an expected time of 40 minutes. By adding in the optional candle-lighting portions, the time is extended about 10 minutes. It also has an option for a guest speaker that adds however much time alloted to the guest. The companion Program Flier is just as easy to customize.

Advancement Recognition Guidance

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 § The Scout Is Recognized.

The Eagle Scout medal or patch must not be sold or otherwise provided to any unit or to the Scout, nor should the court of honor be scheduled until after the certificate is received at the council service center from the National Advancement Program Team.
