Scouts BSA – Eagle Scout
We are still scheduling reviews during Covid 19 in a virtual environment instead of meeting in person at Parkway United Church of Christ. Please follow the normal procedure which is explained below.
All Eagle Scout Paperwork can be turned in online to the Greater St. Louis Area Council. Click here to find instructions to the Electronic Eagle Scout Application Process
Eagle Extension Due to COVID-19:
Scouts will need to use the form attached to the email to file for an extension. Once the form is completed they will need to email the form to email@example.com. Once the form is turned into the council office we will send out the form for district advancement chairs and the council advancement chair to approve. Scouts will receive a letter from the council office stating they have been approved for the extension. They will need to bring this letter to the council office when they turn in their Eagle application.
Please use the following link for the guideline to file for an extension https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2020/03/25/advancement-during-covid-19-official-details-about-eagle-extensions-and-more/?utm_source=scoutingwire&utm_campaign=swemployee412020&utm_medium=email&utm_content=

- Your proposal needs to be be reviewed and signed by the Benefiting organization representative, your Unit leader, and a Committee member.
Scheduling a Final Eagle Board of Review
Before calling, your Eagle Application will need to be signed by Council signed and returned to you.
