Trail to Eagle

This page is the primary resource for Scouts in Meridian District who are following the Trail to Eagle. The ‘Eagle Project Proposal’, ‘Eagle Review Board’, and ‘Schedule a BoR Appointment’ pages address those activities specifically.

♦ When you submit a Proposal or Rank Advancement appointment review, one of the District Advancement Committee members reviews it for completeness.

Beginning April 1, 2024, we will cancel your appointment if the online folder is inaccessible or your documentation is incomplete. You will have to reschedule.

The items below are required. You may – and we encourage you to do so – include supplemental information such as plan drawings, photographs or any other material that will help your Review Board understand your project.

An electronic signature is a signature in electronic form that is captured digitally and then added to a document. An electronic signature serves the same purpose as a handwritten signature identifying the person who signed the document.

A digital signature is an advanced form of electronic signature that provides additional security and verification of the signer’s identity through cryptographic techniques and used where it is important to detect forgery and tampering. Do not use digital signatures. They lock the document you’re working on and prevent any one else from adding a signature.
