service and leadership

Eagle Scout is the highest of the seven ranks attainable by Boy Scouts. The last three ranks - Star, Life and Eagle - focus on service and leadership.  

Requirements include earning a number of merit badges and demonstration of Scout Spirit, service and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout. Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership and merit badge requirements.
