Eagle Scout® is the highest rank in Scouting.® To earn this designation, a Boy Scout must demonstrate excellence in leadership, service, and outdoor skills, and must have earned a minimum of 21 merit badges. In addition, candidates for Eagle Scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project that benefits any school, community organization, or religious institution. This project is thoroughly reviewed and certified by both local and national Scouting authorities before the Eagle Scout award is granted.
