Spirit of the Eagle Award


Spirit of the Eagle Award

The Spirit of the Eagle Award is a Boy Scouts of America (BSA) honorary posthumous special recognition for a youth member under the age of 21, male or female, who has lost their life in an accident or through illness.

The intention of this award is to help heal and comfort the youth member’s family, loved ones, and friends with their loss. It recognizes the joy, happiness, and life-fulfilling experiences the Scouting program made in the youth's life and serves as a final salute and tribute to the departed.

The award is limited to registered youth members and must be submitted by the unit committee within six months of the youth's death. The award consists of a certificate with a soaring eagle, and is imprinted with "Spirit of the Eagle Award" and "Espiritu Del Aguila".
