Eagle Scout ProjectWritten by webmaster
Eagle Scout is the most coveted rank in scouting because it is so hard to achieve. The Eagle Scout project is the main reason that many scouts do not make the rank of Eagle. To finish this project the scout must stay focused and motivated. The way I stayed motivated was that I would set a deadline and had to finish what I was doing by that time. For example, I set a date in advance when I would build my project. This deadline kept me on task. Another big responsibility is staying on top of the paperwork. Doing the Eagle Scout project requires three stages of paperwork - beginning, middle, and end. In the beginning, the life scout must describe his project and how it will be funded. He must also get several signatures of approval. In the middle, he must fill out forms that require all the details of his project from describing every detail to exactly how much money will be spent. At the end, the scout must fill out paper work about how the project went, and then he must get some final signatures. I found that setting deadlines also helped me in this area. Finally, I personally think the hardest part of the eagle project is keeping the other scouts focused while they are helping to build the project. For my project, I built three different things and constantly had to go from one project to another making sure that everyone knew what to do and stayed focused. Because the eagle project requires so much perseverance, it is so hard to become an Eagle Scout.
