Eagle Palm Process

Eagle Palms

Eagle Scouts not yet 18 may work on earning  an Eagle Palm Award.  Here are the instructions to follow:

Requirements: Eagle Palm Application

After successfully completing your Eagle Scout board of review, and being validated as an Eagle Scout by the National Service Center, you will be entitled to receive an Eagle Palm for each additional five merit badges you completed before your Eagle board of
review beyond those required for Eagle.

After becoming an Eagle Scout and receiving the Eagle Palms you are
entitled to, you may earn additional Palms by completing the following
requirements:

1. Be active in the Boy Scouts of America for at least three
months after becoming an Eagle Scout or after the last Palm
was earned.

2. Since earning the Eagle Scout rank or your last Eagle Palm,
demonstrate Scout spirit by living the Scout Oath and Scout
Law. Tell how you have done your duty to God and how you
have lived the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your everyday life.

3. Continue to set a satisfactory example of accepting responsibility
or demonstrating leadership ability.

4. Earn five additional merit badges beyond those required for
Eagle or last Palm.

5. While an Eagle Scout, participate in a Scoutmaster conference.

Notes: For Venturers working on Scouts BSA requirements, replace “Scoutmaster” with “crew Advisor.”

For Sea Scouts
working on Scouts BSA requirements, replace “Scoutmaster” with “Skipper.”

Palms must be earned in sequence, and the three-month tenure requirement must be observed for each Palm.

Merit badges earned any time since joining Scouts BSA may be used to meet this requirement.

If the application is in order, it will be submitted to the Scout Executive for his signature.  At that time, the Unit Leader will be contacted.  The palm cannot be purchased if this process is not complete.  It may take up to 2 weeks after submitting the application for approval to receive the palm.
