New Eagle Scout Project site from Boy's Life. a repository of Eagle project ideas that could be a great starting place for a Scout looking for ideas.

The Eagle Project Showcase offers more than 100 ideas and examples of real Eagle Scout projects completed by Scouts. Each project includes a photo and details on the challenges faced in the completion of that particular project.

Boards of Review

Board of Reviews are held after Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life and Eagle. Parents are encouraged to help on other Scout Boards of Review but may not serve on their sons.

Sample Guidelines for Boards of Review

Which ranks have Boards of Review?

Tenderfoot (approx. 15-20 minutes in length)
2nd Class (approx. 15-20 minutes in length)
1st Class (approx. 20 minutes in length)
Star Rank (approx. 20 minutes in length)
Life Rank (approx. 20-30 minutes in length)

The Board of Review is an opportunity for the scout to develop and practice interviewing skills and review his accomplishments. It is not a retesting of requirements - the scout has already been tested and signed off on those requirements.

Who serves on a Board of Review?

For all ranks (except Eagle) and Eagle palms, the Board of Review consists of three to six members of the Troop Committee. The Troop Advancement Chairperson typically acts as the chairperson of the Board of Review. Relatives or guardians may not serve as members of a Scout's Board of Review. Unit leaders (Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters) may not participate in a Board of Review.

For the rank of Eagle, the Board of Review consists of three to six members drawn from Scouting and the community. The members of the Board of Review are selected by district depending on the council guidelines.

Eagle Rank (approx. 30-50 minutes in length)
and the Eagle Palms (approx. 15 minutes in length)
