Before You Start Working On Your Eagle Project 

When the Eagle Project Proposal is complete and all required signatures (except District approval) have been obtained, a copy of Proposal Pages B, C, D, E, F, and G, including any photos, drawings, or sketches, and the original signature Page H, and signed Fundraising Application Page A (if applicable), should be submitted to the Silver Comet District Advancement Committee for review, additional guidance as necessary, and for the District approval signature. 


(Important Note: Project workdays may not begin prior to District approval).

Submit the completed Proposal via email to our Proposal Reviewer, Chip Philips.  

Typical Project Proposal review takes from two to four weeks from first review by the District Advancement Committee, through the editing and updating process to the approval signature, so please plan accordingly.

If a Scout is not able to submit their Eagle Project Proposal via email, contact the District Advancement Chair.


The Eagle Boards are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Kennesaw United Methodist Church, and the 3rd Thursday of each month at Hollydale United Methodist Church. 

Getting Ready for Your Eagle Board of Review


When an Eagle application is submitted by the Unit to the Council Program Center for verification, the verified and signed application is scanned, a copy is sent to the Silver Comet District Advancement Committee and the signed original is returned to the Unit.


The Silver Comet Eagle Board Coordinator will contact the Eagle candidate’s Scoutmaster and Unit Committee Chair via email, copying the Scout, in order to initiate scheduling of the candidate’s Eagle Board of Review. If the Unit has not heard from the EBOR Coordinator within 7 to 10 days of turning in an Eagle application at the Program Center, please email
