Report to State

2022 Report to State Information

Due to Stage 5 Covid-19 conditions in Travis County and other considerations, this year’s Report to State will now be a 100% virtual event. We look forward to returning to an in-person delegates’ breakfast, Scout Spirit rally, report, and service project in 2023.

We invite your council to participate viewing each council’s youth representative giving their report in this video:


What is Report to State?

Scout delegates from our council and across Texas will gather every February to update state leadership on the community service provided and accomplishments realized over the past year.

What does a typical Report to State look like?

The day starts with a breakfast for the delegates,  and then Scouts head to the Capitol grounds for the Scout Spirit rally, the Report to State presentation in the Texas House of Representatives, and then take part in a Day of Service in the afternoon. Eagle Scouts of all ages are also invited to take part in the Eagle Scout re-commitment ceremony. There is no cost for any of these activities; patches are available for usually $5 each.

Typical Report to State event schedule (subject to change as needed each year):

9:30am – Scout Spirit Rally (South steps of Capitol)
9:30am – Eagle Scout re-commitment ceremony (South steps of Capitol)
10:10am – Go through Capitol security (assigned entry doors North, South, East, West)
10:10am – House Chamber opens for youth delegates
11:00am – Report to State begins
11:30am – Group photo in House Chamber (youth delegates only)
12:30pm – Report to State concludes
1:30pm – Day of Service begins

 


What are Delegates?

All councils in Texas are invited to participate. A delegates breakfast program will take place at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the UT campus, followed by the morning’s Report to State program at the Capitol.

Because of space limitations at the conference center/Capitol and time constraints, the size of each delegation is restricted to a maximum of two (2) youth per district. His/her primary task is to take part in the council’s official report at the designated report location. Only Scout youth member delegates will be allowed on the floor of the House of Representatives. The other adults in your delegation will be able to sit in the gallery of the House of Representatives. Please understand this is a report to a state official, not necessarily the Governor. Delegates are youth only.

What does a Delegate do and how much does it cost?

Typically there is a $40 delegate fee for each youth and adult in a council delegation. This fee covers the delegate breakfast, a commemorative patch, and an electronic copy of the delegation group photo. Parents of Scout delegates who are not registered adult members of a council delegation may purchase and attend breakfast.

Typical Delegate event schedule (subject to change as needed each year):

7:30am – Check in at AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, 1900 University Ave.
8:00am – Breakfast and program
9:30am – Scout Spirit Rally (South steps of Capitol)
9:30am – Eagle re-commitment ceremony (South steps of Capitol)
10:10am – Go through Capitol security (assigned entry doors North, South, East, West)
10:10am – House Chamber opens for youth delegates
11:00am – Report to State begins
11:30am – Group photo in House Chamber (youth delegates only)
12:30pm – Report to State concludes
