Welcome! It was just February 1st, 2019 when female youth were invited to join Scouts BSA, the new name of the Boy Scout program for youth ages 11-17. Today, we are excited to announce the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts in Longhorn Council! These amazing youth have worked nonstop for the past two years despite the numerous challenges they were presented. Their perseverance and dedication have led them to achieve the highest award for youth in Scouts BSA: the Eagle Scout award.

About the Eagle Scout Award
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Scouts BSA program of the Boy Scouts of America. Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned this rank after a lengthy review process. The Eagle Scout rank has been earned by over 2.5 million youth.
To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouts BSA, a Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. Although many options are available to demonstrate proficiency in these areas, a number of specific skills are required to advance through the ranks—Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. To advance, a Scout must meet specific requirements ranging from tenure in a unit and leadership positions to the earning of merit badges.
