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.

Courts of Honor

Each time a Scout advances in rank, he should be recognized on two occasions. The first should occur as soon as possible after a Scout has been approved by a board of review and an Advancement Report has been filed with the council office - preferably at the next unit meeting. This ceremony should be dignified but simple, involving not much more than presenting the Scout with his new badge of rank.

The second occasion is a court of honor, a public ceremony to recognize Scouts for successful achievement and to describe the importance of the program. The main purposes of the court of honor are to furnish formal recognition for achievement and to provide incentive for other Scouts to advance.

Formal courts of honor should be conducted at least four times a year. All Scouts who have advanced since the previous court of honor are honored. Their parents and friends should be invited to attend the ceremony.

Eagle Court of Honor

The primary purpose is to honor the new Eagle Scout. But the ceremony should serve other purposes besides presenting the scout with his Eagle badge. It should also present him with a challenge: to use what he has learned to better his troop and community.

Others, specifically his parents and Scout leaders, who have helped him climb the trail to Eagle should be recognized for their support.

Another purpose of the court of honor is to set an example for other Scouts in the troop, as well as Cub or Webelos Scouts to travel the Trail to Eagle.
Finally, the ceremony should inform and inspire family members, friends, Scout parents and others in the audience about the Scouting program and charge them up to get involved.

Creating a memorable Eagle Court of Honor will inspire future Eagles and encourage your guests to return for the next court of honor your troop has.
