Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program division of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since it was first awarded in 1912, Eagle Scout has been earned by more than two million young men.[4] The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle".

As of 2011, requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges, and demonstrating Scout Spirit, leadership and service. The requirements also include an Eagle Scout Service Project where the Scout must further demonstrate service and leadership.[5] Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout. Eagle Palms are a further recognition, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership and merit badge requirements.

The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award (DESA) is one of three distinguished service awards given for national level service and is bestowed only to Eagle Scouts for nationally renowned distinguished service in their profession and to the community for a period of at least 25 years after earning the Eagle Scout rank.[6] Since its introduction in 1969 by the National Eagle Scout Association, the DESA has been awarded to just under 2000 Eagle Scouts.[a] The other two national level BSA Distinguished Service Awards are the Silver Buffalo Award[7] and the Order of the Arrow Distinguished Service Award.[8]

In 2011 the National Eagle Scout Association awarded the first set of NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Awards (NOESA) which are similar to the DESA mentioned above with two noted exceptions: Recipients may have distinguished themselves at a local to regional level rather than at a national level or recipients may have distinguished themselves nationally but have not yet met the 25 year tenure requirement to be considered for a DESA award.[9] The NOESA is similar to the Silver Beaver Award in that it is quota-based and awarded nationally upon the recommendation of a local Boy Scout council.[10][11]
