Eagle Scout Information

Eagle, Summit, Quartermaster and Gold Congratulation Letters


Although most frequently, letters are requested for new Eagle Scouts, the list below can and should be used when requesting letters of commendation for Venturers who have earned the Summit Award, and for Sea Scouts who have earned the Quartermaster Rank,  and for Girl Scouts who have earned the GSUSA Gold Award.  When sending letters for those awards, please in your explanation, don't include phrases like "The Summit Award is the Venturing version of Eagle" or "Quartermaster is the Sea Scout equivalent of Eagle" or "the Gold award is the Girl Scout version of Eagle Scout". Summit and Quartermaster, and the Gold Award are their own awards and what should be stressed are the skills and leadership experiences gained by earning them!

When sending notes to people asking for letters of commendation, please include:

  • The Scout or Venturer's FULL NAME (not just "Sparky" or "Jimmy" but "Samuel James Jackson" or "James Ray Morrison")
  • The UNIT NUMBER and COUNCIL NAME (the Unit number is that number his left shoulder; the Council name appears on the patch right above it), and
  • A SHORT DESCRIPTION of the Service Project led by and completed as a requirement for the award.
  • It is also courteous to include a self addressed stamped envelope when writing to private individuals or organizations. That is usually not necessary when writing to government officials.

Many people writing a letter to acknowledge an Eagle Scout, Quartermaster, or Gold or Summit recipient, would also like to know how the person earned the badge. But don't only discuss the Service Project. Give some information about the Scout and his or her activities. This gives them more than just a "congratulations, Johnny, on your achievement" line and also can allow the letter to be a bit more personalized than boilerplate letters.  In this regard, here is what our resident Commissioner "Andy McCommish" wrote on his "Ask Andy" blog after he got a request for a letter to a new Eagle Scout.

I've just received another letter inviting me to a court of honor for your troop's newest Eagle Scout - the most recent in a string of several hundred in the past ten years alone. Your letter lauds this Scout's service project and gives great detail of all the work done. Inevitably, however, and like all others preceding it, the letter - except for time, date, and location - stops there. To the uninitiated, it would seem that attaining the rank of Eagle solely involves a community service project of some kind. To others, including myself, there's disappointment: It's as if the coffee-after-dessert is all I get; there's no mention of the preceding courses all of which have led up to this.

Where, I wonder, is a description of what this young man has learned about citizenship and his role in his community, nation, and the world at large. Will I not learn that he's now skilled in first aid and has the ability to save life on both land and in the water, or has developed and carried out a mobilization plan for his troop in an emergency situation? How many miles has he hiked and backpacked; how many camping trips has he taken, and where has he gone? How has he developed and honed his communication and leadership skills both among his peers who have elected him to lead, and how has he learned to be a responsible team member when called upon?

This young man has led his patrol and troop in significant ways for extended periods, yet I learn nothing of these roles. Nor do I learn how he has developed his physical and mental fitness in this preparation for his future life. Can he handle a canoe? A sailboat? Can he survive in the wilderness by himself - a skill few outside of Scouting know anything at all about? Does he know firearms safety? Has he grown as a member of his own family? Does he know how to protect himself and other youth, if necessary, from bullying and other forms of abuse? Can he manage money and a budget? What does he know of ecology and - today's buzzword - sustainability? What explorations into subjects only Scouts get to choose from has he made? Does he know what to do if confronted by a snake bite, or contact with a poisonous plant? Does he know the flora and fauna of the region he lives in? Has his service project developed not only his leadership skills but also his knowledge of project planning, including "sweating the details." How does he live the Scout Oath and Law in his daily life? What are his aspirations for his own future?

Tell me about his life beyond Scouting. What has he accomplished for himself scholastically and in team and individual sports? What of his religious life?

Has he been recommended for this rank by his teachers or principal, his employers, his religious mentor?

All of this and more ... absent. Instead of understanding the "whole" of this fine young man, I'm left with impressions of wood and gravel and plantings and such. There's no "three-dimensional image" of him here; he's done community service and that's all your letter tells me. Please tell me more. Please honor everything that this young man has accomplished for himself. Make that image "3D"!

Remember that the purpose of a congratulatory letter is to honor the Scout and that each person you write may be getting many, many requests. This is not a race or a contest to see who can get the most letters. Often a few letters are more meaningful than a scrapbook full of letters that ends up on a shelf. Sometimes the best thing is a letter or two from an admired prominent person, a state official like a governor, a local official like a mayor, and letters from local prominent people that the Scout knows or who know the Scout.

Please pick and choose so that people who are willing to write a letter do not get overwhelmed and decide to stop accepting requests.
