You should get it from your local Council service center.

All the forms are available on-line somewhere, but the whole package will look much better if you use the printed book rather than the loose sheets you printed. Look for the forms on-line to get a good idea of what you need to have to put the project together for approval while you are waiting for someone to get the packet from the service center.

Actually, I personally think the RTF format version, with you using it in a word processor looks better than the printed project workbook with either handwritten, or cut and paste data.

The application form (pdf) and the project workbook (pdf or rtf) can be downloaded from the bsa website at http://www.scouting.org/boyscouts/eagle ... index.html

I'd also check with your local Council to see if there are any other forms or information sheets they want you to submit.

Micah when you had your Life Scout Court of Horor you should have been given your Eagle Packet. ACtually I give it to the boy immediately when I get it if there is a delay in the COH.

this doesnt happen in our troop for some reason. in our troop the stress responsibility, so i have a feeling that is why no body gets them.

Call your service center and request one sent to you. It is a National Requirement.

Your council office, troop, and web sites are all option to get the info. Here's our site: http://members.cox.net/scouting179 (go to the eagle section on the links page).

Micah. If you will go to the home page for this site you will find a list for FORMS. Go to that list and you will find the RTF file for the Eagle Packet.
We like for the boys to use this one to do their write up. But you also should use the original for the signoff on the project and such. I personally like the RTF file much better.
your community is a tree. You are either a leaf that feeds it or mistletoe that suckes it dry. Be sure you are always a leaf.

i looked at the rtf on the main website. i looked it over. is there any requirement for hours, or is it just as many hours as you need.

There is no official requirement for hours.

Some councils/districts/troop set a limit as they think of it as a way to quantify how much effort was put forth.

Just be sure your project is of beneift to the community in some form and that is has a component that shows how you showed leadership in accomplishing what you set out to do.

A project that is very simple to accomplish will not show the leadership skills that an Eagle is supposed to be learning and practicing.

You should show leadership for having others help with the project but it is also good that you do part of the work also.

Remember you MUST have your project approved by te District Advancement Chairman before you can start on it. This is all in the Eagle Project book. Iknow a Board that had to turn a young man down for Eagle as he did not have his project approved b efore he did it. He later did it correctly But that took time Money and Energy.

Part of being a good leader is helping to do the work and showing how to do it correctly.

Keep thinking of other options if the wildlife refuge doesn't have something that fits your needs.

Micah. Remember the journey to Eagle is not a race. It isn't how fast you can become an Eagle. There is a big difference between reaching the Rank of Eagle and earning the Rank of Eagle. Once you have earned Eagle there is a hugh amount of responsibility that goes with that rank.
YOu need to figure out what you plan on giving back to Scouting. How do you plan on improving your Troop and District once you have reached Eagle. The Rank of Eagle it totally different than any other rank you have earned.
Enjoy the journey to Eagle. Smell the roses along the path. Sit and watch the birds. Don't go down the trail with blinders on only seeing the end of the trail and not the beauty along the way.

Kevin earned Life at 12. He could be Eagle by July at 13. Do I want him to do that? To be honest NO. I sincerely hope it takes him over a year to achieve the Rank of Eagle. Will he be a good Eagle even at 13? Yes. But I really want him to take a slow journey down this very important trail.
