Eagle Scout award

Boy Scout Awards

There are many additional awards scouts can earn for extra activities in addition to the traditional scouting awards and rank advancements. Some recognition can be earned by any rank scout while others are only available to specific ranks. These awards can be used to recognize extra effort by a scout in an area of interest. Some awards are presented through the Boy Scouts of America while others are from different organizations.

For service, training, recognition, and personal achievement awards that include a square knot to be worn on the scout uniform, please see our Boy Scout Award Knots page.

Please remember that the award is a recognition of an accomplishment - the award should normally not be the main reason for doing a task or project. Find something interesting to do, reach your goals, and then use the award as recognition.

The top scouting accomplishment for youth in the BSA is the eagle scout award and takes a tremendous effort over many years to reach. Cub scouts and boy scouts can earn many different kinds of recognition for performing special services or completing projects. Some awards, such as the world conservation award, can be earned at different levels of scouting requiring different effort based on the scout's level. The boy scout religious award is significant and often overlooked.

I am looking for an award/badge for a group of wolves that did a great deal of community service related to Hurricane Sandy helping others.  Do you have any ideas?

To Lanore Miller -- Look at the Heritage Award. The Scouts have to do the flag/national anthem requirements anyway, and the service project fits well within the guidelines.

to lanore miller-- You might have a look at Messengers of Peace, too. Especially if boys across your whole unit participated.

can an eagle palm that was earned be worn on the Eagle Scout square knot as an adult

@ Joshua C. Yes, in fact, that's the idea (unless you're like me and hate wearing the devices on the knots).
