The Eagle Scout Rank Application lists six requirements. Requirement number two provides for six references (five if the Scout is not employed) to be listed who are willing to furnish a recommendation of the Scout’s behalf concerning his demonstration of the Scout Oath and Law.

In order to fulfill this requirement in the Northeast Georgia Council, it will be the Scout’s responsibility to contact these six individuals and furnish the attached letter explaining their role in his advancement. The letters of reference should be sent to the Chairman of the Eagle Board, in care of the Scout’s unit leader (Troop Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor, or Team Coach). These unopened envelopes should be submitted with the Eagle Scout Application at the time it is submitted to the Scout Service Center.

All letters of reference will be treated with strict confidence as appropriate and destroyed after the National Eagle Scout Service awards the Eagle rank to the Scout.
