Eagle Extensions - More Info

Basically, if you are turning 18 in the next few months and the Covid-19 lock down is an issue for your project and or merit badges, then use that as the reason you cannot complete eagle project on time, i.e. merit badge incompletions due to covid-19 are reasons also for why eagle project cannot be completed
As of now, there are no virtual get-a-rounds for merit badge requirements, as in cooking for the cooking or camping merit badges
You are allowed an extension (as of now) up until Sept 1, that may change, but get them in to council either through the advancement ( jeshea@gmail.com) or to the council office ( jonathan.pleva@scouting.org)

Eagle Scout Certificates and Extensions

All scoutmasters and parents of Eagle Scouts should know that National BSA is currently not printing/mailing out credentials. This will be the case until they are able to open back up – and even then, there is likely to be a continued delay for some time in mailing them to Councils. Therefore, it might be some time before we are able to mail Eagle Certificates and Court of Honor Kits to scoutmasters and families.

Eagle Extensions
Scouts who are on the path to Eagle might also be eligible for Eagle Extensions:
-Scout must be Life Scout when making the request.
-Submit the form AND a cover letter requesting the extension. In the letter explain how Covid-19 prevented them from finishing the requirements for Eagle.
-Both submissions should be sent to Jon Pleva and the respective District Advancement Chair
-3 months will be granted. The 3 months extension begin on their 18th birthday. https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/512-077.pdf
