New 2011 NESA Scholarship

This year, the National Eagle Scout Association will award 148 scholarships to Eagle Scouts through various scholarship funds. They vary in amount from $1,000 to $48,000.

The scholarships are for tuition, room, board, and books only, and are limited for use at a four-year college/university that is accredited by recognized accreditation agencies and offers at least a bachelor’s degree upon completion of the course of study offered.

Boy Scout rank requirements effective January 1, 2008

The National Youth Protection Committee recommended additions to Boy Scout rank requirements that became effective January 1, 2008. These changes will help us advance the importance of Youth Protection training beyond the initial Boy Scout joining requirements, and keep youth informed and actively engaged in understanding the key elements of personal safety and protection.

Tenderfoot Rank
Revised requirement 9:
Explain the importance of the buddy system as it relates to your personal safety on outings and in your neighborhood. Describe what a bully is and how you should respond to one.

Second Class Rank
Requirement 8b:
Explain the three R's of personal safety and protection.

First Class Rank
Requirement 12:
Describe the three things you should avoid doing related to use of the Internet. Describe a cyberbully and how you should respond to one. The changes are represented in the 2008 Boy Scout Requirements book and the revised ninth printing of the 11th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook. Though they became effective on January 1, 2008, they are "grandfathered," meaning that a Boy Scout may earn the rank he is already working on, be it Tenderfoot, Second Class, or First Class, under the requirements in effect when he started. In the Boy Scout Handbook the information needed by Boy Scouts to complete the requirements will be found.
