No surprise, then that your fellow Scouters called Requirement 5 THE toughest Eagle requirement in Scouting.
This is why it is important to find a project that you are truly passionate about. More than 2 million Eagle projects have already been completed, so don’t worry if the idea has been done before.
Here is what the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook says on that subject:
“Your project doesn’t have to be original, but it could be. It might be a construction, conservation, or remodeling project, or it could be the presentation of an event with a worthwhile purpose.
Conversations with your unit leader, teachers, your religious leader, or the leaders of various community organizations can also uncover ideas.
In any case, be sure the project presents a challenge that requires leadership, but also something that you can do with unskilled helpers, and within a reasonable period of time.”
The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award recognizes outstanding Eagle projects.
Upon completion of your Eagle Board of Review, don't forget to submit your project for consider. Learn more about the award and previous receptions.
