Eagle Scout Projects

As young men in Scouting work to earn their Eagle Scout Award, part of this rank requires a project that he must plan and carry out. The review of these projects takes place at the monthly Roundtable Meetings. (Roundtable meetings take place on the first Thursday of the month (except July) at Shawnee United Methodist Church- 10700 Johnson Drive).To help Scouts prepare for the project review and finalization, we suggest you look at the following information:

Shawnee Trails District is proud of the many Eagle Scouts that come out of all our troops throughout the year. Annually, more than 150 boys earn the Eagle Scout Award in our district.

Shawnee Trails district holds its Eagle Scout Boards of Review on the third Thursday of each month at the Emmanuel Baptist Church: 10100 Metcalf, Overland Park, KS 66212.

If you have any questions about Advancements or Eagle Scout Projects please contact Lowell Teague, Advancement Chairman.
