NOTE: All email communications should come from the Eagle Candidate (not the parents)
Starting your paperwork - Part 1
Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook: https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/advancement-and-awards/eagle-scout-workbook/
The council wants to receive 1 PDF version of the file. The signature page(s) is where it gets tricky.
You will submit Part 1 with your initial application (parts 2 & 3 will be blank at this time)
Print Part 1. Sign it
Print any signature pages you receive electronically (post covid you can meet with beneficiary, scout master & committee chair and receive signatures on one page).
Insert the printed signed pages into your workbook package and scan the entire workbook into 1 document. The council does not want multiple documents and since adobe is very hard to insert/remove pages, this was the best way we found to complete this task.
Suggestion any pictures -drawings of area or location of project are always very Helpful when project is discussed with District Advancement..
Email address: send signed Eagle Project workbook to Mayflower council & copy an adult: firstname.lastname@example.org (This is during and post covid - the council doesn't want any hard copies - only electronically)
Wait for the council to reply back with updates/questions or approval. You are not approved until you have responded to questions/feedback and receive an email starting your project is approved
After Council Approves (Part 2):
When your project is completed (Part 3):
Collect Signatures from Yourself, beneficiary & scout master
Update part 3 of the proposal
Use the same email addresses when the project is completed and signed by the beneficiary to send in: email@example.com
Copy an adult on any email communication to the council.
Keep a record of all emails (save them in your email
Send the completed application to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The letters can be in word or PDF. I would suggest that you send them the boy scout oath & Scout law and ask them to mention some of the laws in the letter (loyal, friendly, kind...)
You will need the following:
Religious (optional) - if you do not have a religious affiliation, then make sure your parents address your "reverence"
