Eagle boards of review are held by appointment only. They typically take about 30 minutes.


Eagle board of reviews will be held on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  Appointments will be made by Elizabeth Shumway.  801-407-6100 or



Come dressed in a Boy Scout uniform or your Sunday best. Do NOT go buy a Boy Scout uniform for your Board of Review! If you choose to wear a Scout shirt, you may wear official Boy Scout pants, dress slacks, or khakis. Do not wear denim or jeans. The merit badge sash may be worn, but is optional.


At the beginning of your review, you and your Scout leader will stand while your leader introduces and recommends you to the board.


After introductions, you will recite the Scout Oath and Scout Law while giving the Scout sign—right arm raised to a 90° angle (Scout Handbook, p. 7).


The board of review consists of three adult Scout leaders. They will ask you questions about your Eagle project, your merit badges, the Scout Oath and Law, your goals and ambitions and about your Scouting experiences.


Your parents may come with you to your board of review. However, they must wait outside during your review. After your board of review, you and your parents will meet with the board members to receive instructions.


After your Board, your paperwork will be sent to the Utah National Parks Council for approval. Then, it’s sent to the National BSA. The whole process from takes 3 to 6 weeks, maybe longer depending on the National BSA.


You will receive a phone call or an email verifying your Eagle paperwork has been approved. After you receive that phone call or email, you can hold your Eagle Court of Honor.






After you Board of Review, you are an Eagle Scout “candidate” until the National Boy Scouts of America approves your Eagle application.  The date of your Eagle board of review is the date you are officially an Eagle Scout.


STEP 1: Wait for a phone call or email from scout office

We will give your paperwork to the council. After the council and national BSA offices approve your application, you will receive a phone call or an email from the scout office


STEP 2: Pick up your Eagle packet

After you receive your phone call or email, you and/or a parent or leader takes it to the Scout office:

Utah National Parks Council

748 North 1340 West, Orem, Utah 84057

Main number: 801-437-6222

Scout Shop: 801-221-1008

OPEN: M-F, 8:30 to 5:30; Saturday, 9:00 to 2:00


As you walk into the scout office, just let them know you are here to pick up your eagle certificate.  They will direct from there

1) Your Eagle certificate

2) Your Eagle plastic wallet card

3) A voucher to buy your presentation kit (see step 3)


IMPORTANT: You may not hold your Eagle court of honor until you receive your Eagle certificate, which verifies you are officially an Eagle Scout.


STEP 3: Buy an Eagle presentation kit

This is optional. If you choose to buy a Scout presentation kit, take the voucher to the Scout store located next door. Go to the rotunda and give them your voucher. The kit includes a patch, medal, mother’s pin, father’s pin and mentor pin. You may buy more than one mentor pin. The estimated cost of the presentation kit is $29.99. Before visiting the Scout store, ask your leader who pays for this kit. Some units pay. 


STEP 4: Hold your Eagle court of honor

Do not announce the date for your court of honor until you have received your Eagle certificate (step #2) and obtained your Eagle presentation kit (step #3). There is no “official” way to hold a court of honor. The ceremony is up to you, your parents and leaders.



Display your Eagle certificate at your court of honor.
