The NESA Store has released… “The Class of 2021 Eagle Scout patch, one no one will miss. Here it is almost 7 inches in diameter perfect to sew on your pack, duffle bag or jacket. Not for uniform wear.” View at nesastore.org
Eagle Scouts have been leading positive change in their communities for more than a century. That tradition continues with the historic inaugural class of Female Eagle Scouts. Help celebrate the leadership accomplishments of the inaugural class as we highlight the positive impact Scouts make in communities every day.
Nominations for the 2021 American Legion Eagle Scout of the Year award are now being accepted.

To honor Scouts that earned the Eagle Scout rank in 2020, Scout Life magazine will publish a special digital edition, and you can purchase a space in it to congratulate a new Eagle Scout or class of Eagle Scouts. Boys’ Life magazine was renamed Scout Life in the January-February 2021 issue.
