Eagle Project Plan Checklist
- Follow the steps outlined to get your project started. Use the following link to get a
copy of the Project Workbook.
Attention Scouts, Leaders, and Parents or Guardians:
Eagle Scout rank requirement 5 has been reworded. To support that change, a new Eagle Scout
Service Project Workbook has been created. Through Dec. 31, 2011, Scouts have a choice to
use either the new workbook or the one it is replacing. Scouts whose Eagle Scout service
project has already been approved by the council or district under the former wording of
requirement 5—and using the former workbook—should continue with the same workbook. If their
project has not yet been approved by the council or district, they may elect to use the revised
requirement 5 and the new workbook. Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Eagle Scout candidates—unless they
have already submitted a plan for approval by the council or district under the former
requirement—will be expected to fulfill the revised service project requirement 5 using the new
Eagle Project Workbook
