Eagle Scout Challenge
The foremost responsibility of an Eagle Scout is to live with honor.
To an Eagle Scout, honor is the foundation of all character. He
knows that "A Scout is trustworthy" is the very first point of the
Scout Law for a good reason. An Eagle Scout lives honorably,
not only because honor is important to him but because of the vital
significance of the example he sets for other Scouts. Living
honorably reflects credit on his home, his church, his troop, and his
community May the white of the Eagle badge remind you to
always live with honor.
The second obligation of an Eagle Scout is Loyalty. A Scout is true to
his family, Scout leaders, friends, school, and nation. His
loyalty to his troop and brother Scouts makes him pitch in and carry
his share of the load. All of these help to build the loyalty
that means devotion to community, to country, to one 5 own ideals, and
to God. Let the Blue of the Eagle badge always inspire
The third obligation of an Eagle Scout is to be courageous. Courage
has always been a quality by which men measure
themselves and others. To a Scout, bravery means not only the courage
to face physical danger, but also the determination to
stand up for the right. Trusting in God. With faith in his fellowman.
He looks forward to each day, seeking his share of the
world's work to do. Let the red of the Eagle badge remind you always
The fourth obligation of an Eagle Scout is to be cheerful. To remind
the Eagle Scout to always wear a smile. The red, white, and
blue ribbon is attached to the scroll of the Second Class Scout award,
which has its ends turned up in a smile.
The final responsibility of an Eagle Scout is service. The Eagle Scout
extends a helping hand to those who still toil up Scouting's
trail, just as others helped him in his climb to the Eagle. The
performance of the daily Good Turn takes on a new meaning when
enters a more adult life of continuing service to others. The Eagle
stands a protector of the weak and helpless. He aids and
comforts the unfortunate and oppressed. He holds the right of others
while defending his own. He will always "Be Prepared" to
put forth his best.
You deserve much credit for having achieved Scouting's highest award.
But wear your award with humility, ever mindful the
Eagle Scout is looked up to as an example. May the Scout Oath and the
Scout Law be your guide for tomorrow and onwa
