  3. Complete the Eagle Rank Application, following the proper procedure.
  4. Email, Mail, or submit in person to the Fickett Center between 8am-5pm, Monday- Friday, your Eagle application with signatures, statement of life ambitions, and supporting verification documents to our Eagle Processor.
  5. Once council certified, wait for your District Advancement Committee to schedule your Eagle Scout Board of Review (find your Advancement Committee Chair’s contact information under each district’s listing here)
  6. Attend your Eagle Scout Board of Review. Upon successful completion of your Board of Review, email, mail, or submit in person your signed Eagle Scout Application to our Eagle Processor at the Fickett Center.
