Eagle Rank Eagle Rank

Fewer than 3% of all Scouts earn the Eagle rank — a testament to its high standards. Among those who have worn the Eagle Scout badge are some of America's finest athletes, physicians, politicians, scientists, writers, astronauts, business leaders, film directors, and even a presidient of the United States.

The very first Boy Scout Handbook described anyone worthy of the Eagle Scout Award as “the all-round perfect scout.” That is a very demanding standard, and a worthy goal. It requires your best efforts to master the skills of leadership, service, and outdoor know-how, and to practice good citizenship and ethical behavior of the highest order.

Along the way throughout your life, the rewards from earning the Eagle Scout Award will be great.
